Can a 357 magnum shoot 38 long colt bullets?
No. A .357 Magnum revolver (not an automatic, lever action, or anything else with a headspaced chamber) can fire .38 S&W Special ammo, but not .38 Long Colt.
There are a dozen different cartridges with 38 in their name, and SOME are compatible with the .357 Magnum. A .357 will fire .38 Special, .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt- but NOT .38 S&W.
44 Long? Check your cartridge again. As for your question, whatever you have, I'm almost 100% certain it won't be compatible with a .44 Magnum firearm. The only cartridge backwards compatible with the .44 Magnum is the .44 Special, and even that has limitations. .44 Special can be fired in a .44 Magnum revolver, but you need to check with the manufacturer before attempting this with a rifle, as the rifle will have a headspaced… Read More
simply put .... no... you need long caliber bullets to fit in the chamber properly Actually, if you have some half moon clips, you can shoot .45acp in a .45LC. You will not be pleased with the results though. Buy some .45 LC ammunition please.
NO NO NO! Only shoot what the rifle is chambered for and so marked.
First, it is Harrington & Richardson. Second- it depends. What is marked on the gun? H&Rs were made in .22 Short, .22 long, .22 Long Rifle, .22 Special, .22 WRF and .22 Magnum.
It will be marked on the barrel
Ordinary .410 shotguns CANNOT safely fire .45 Colt, .44 Magnum or any other cartridge. Stick to .410s. They are designed for a lower pressure, smaller projectile. No. Bad ju-ju. Don't.
No. .38 Long Colt was the forerunner to .38 Special- and was originally a black powder cartridge. The .38 Special is more powerful- the .357 magnum is MUCH more powerful. Neither the Special nor the magnum should be fired in a gun chambered for .38 Long Colt. This is VERY dangerous.
A .22 revolver takes CARTRIDGES. Which .22 cartridge will depend on what caliber the revolver was made for. A .22 LR can shoot Long Rifle or Short cartridges, and a .22 WMR uses .22 magnum cartridges. They do not interchange. There are a few .22 revolvers that have 2 cylinders, and can shoot either cartridge.
NO! The .22 mag case is larger in diameter than the .22 long rifle case thus the chamber of a .22 mag gun is too large for a .22 long rifle bullet. If the bullet does fire, the case will split with unpleasant and innaccurate results.
the judge fires 45 colt which is the same as 45 long colt not to be confused with 45 acp it also fires 410 shot shells
Typically, no. There are some .410 shotguns which can also fire one or more rimmed pistol cartridges (usually .45 Long Colt, but I've seen them for .41 Magnum and .44 Magnum, as well), but these are purpose built to be able to do this - it cannot be done in an ordinary .410 shotgun.
No, they are different sizes.
No. .22mag. bullets are too long, and they aren't heel-type bullets
2500+ fps and it could shoot as long as you want in eyes view.
Have it checked over by a good gunsmith before you attmept this.
a gunsmith needs to check both the ammo and rifle.
No. .22 LR and .22 WMR (magnums) are not interchangeable. The .22 Mag is ot only longer, but larger diameter bore and cartridge case. If the LR round fires, it is likely to split the case, and accuracy will suck.
Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver)… Read More
No. .22 Magnum and .22 Long Rifle are not interchangeable.
Needs to be examined by a gunsmith.
If you mean a Remington 512 X Sportsmaster, no. It is for .22 Short, Long, Long rifle cartridges. The .22 magnum is longer, larger in diameter and more powerful.
It's not the same. .45 LC (long colt) and .45 Mag are not the same.
Although it can be done, DO NOT !! Never fire ammunition in a weapon that it is not chambered for.
1. You can but you risk damaging the .22 magnum barrel. The magnum barrel is specially designed to take the full force of a magnum bullet, not a regular bullet. But if you try to shoot a magnum shell in the regular cylinder, you risk a blow up. 2. You can shoot .22 Long Rifle ammunition in a .22 magnum barrel safely as long as the chamber is a .22 Long Rifle chamber or the… Read More
.38 Special, .38 Long Colt, .38 Short Colt. .38 S&W CANNOT be used in a .38 Special. .38 Special can be fired from a .357 Magnum weapon, but .357 Magnum cannot be fired from a .38 Special weapon.
IF a rifle is chambered in caliber .35y magnum, yes. Among others, Marlin made a lever action .357 magnum rifle.
Nope. The .450 is a belted cartridge.
Nope. 357 magnum cartridge is too long, and too powerful.
22 Long Rifle
You can shoot 45 Long Colt or .410 shot shells with this weapon. 45 ACP rounds will not work properly.
No, My grand dad gave me one. as the kid I am, I tried this before . The .22 magnum is to big to fit in the gun.
Danger, Do not attempt this!.
Yes, you can also fire 32 S&W, 32 S&W long, and 32 semi rimmed ACP, and the 32 H & R magnum. This can be found in Wiki. The first answer may have thought you said 357 magnum.
Any maker who makes a 41 Magnum <><><> Or the MUCH older Colt .41 Long Double Action- an obsolete cartridge.
There are revolvers made with 2 cylinders that can switch back and forth between LR and Magnum ammo. However, those have a barrel bored to magnum specs. Simply adding a magnum cylinder to a 22 LR is not safe.
DON'T DO THIS UNLESS THE MAKER SAYS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Short answer, NO. It should be marked as .22 s-l-lr (short, long, and long rifle). It will not be marked .22 WRM (Winchester rinfire magnum).
It fires .22 Long Rifle bullets, and leaves behind shell casings when you eject them from the cylinder after firing.
The 45 long colt has a longer rimmed case and is used in revolvers and rifles. The 45ACP has no rim, is shorter and is used in automatic pistols. They share the same bullets but the cases and powder charges are different. You can't interchange the two.
Your rifle should be chambered for .22 Magnum. As such, the chamber is too long and too big for .22 Long Rifle and, if the shell will fire, the case will usually split. Not recommended.
In most cases, no. The .22 Extra Long is an obsolete cartridge that has not been manufactured in many years. The .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire IS currently manufactured, but does not interchange with .22 LR. Despite the similar names, they are different diameters.
vice versa sniper rifles shoot their bullets faster than the speed of sound
No one answer to your question. I shoot light .243 bullets for groundhogs, heavier bullets for deer. All other things being equal, the lighter bullet can be driven faster, but the heavier bullet will retain energy at long range better.
Yes as long as the chamber is marked for the 3in.shell It would say chambered for 2 3/4 or 3in shell.
It can fire .22 Long Rifle, .22 Long or .22 Short. It CANNOT fire .22 magnum.
Caliber refers to the diameter of the bullet and the diameter of a firearm's barrel. Even within a single caliber, there are several variations: .38 special is different ammunition than .380 ACP (9mm short) which is different than .38 Long Colt, which is different than .38 Short Colt which is different than .357 Magnum, which is different than 9mm parabellum. These differences have to do with the size & shape of the cartridge (brass) and… Read More
Yes, there are. There are different 9mm Cartridges, and different 9mm bullets (bullets being the part of the cartridge that comes out of the barrel. Some of the different cartridges are 9mm Parabellum (the everyday 9mm) 9mm Browning Long, 9mm Magnum, 9mm Largo, 9mm Kurz (the .380) 9mm Makarov and a dozen others. 9mm BULLETS may be different weights, slightly different sizes, and may be round nosed, hollow point, truncated cone, tracer, etc etc.
all .22-250 shoot 1&14 twist unless custom made to shoot long extra heavy custom bullets above 60gr. this rifle in question does not, it has a standard 1&14 twist
Just as long as the sentence for having a gun with bullets.
