No. Only black powder shells can be used, and even than, it may not be safe to shoot. I load my own with 2 drams of 2f real black powder and 7/8 oz of shot. Have a gunsmith take a look at the gun first.

Were can you buy 38 rimfire ammo for antique pistol?

First, it is important to know that the weapon is capable of being fired safely. When you say antique, it just makes my eyebrows raise a little. As far as being able to obtain ammunition for the pistol, there are plenty of online stores that specialize in ammunition for hard-to-find pistols and rilfes. You, of course, will probably pay a premium for it, but that is the way it is for niche items in most industries. Just Google .38 Rimfire ammunition, and you will find a plethera (well, more than one) of companies that will gladly sell you some .38 rimfire ammo. Just please be sure that you KNOW what caliber the gun actually is, and that the pressures used in loading the ammunition you buy are not going to exceed the capabilities of the gun to safely discharge those rounds. Antique guns, in my opinion, should be kept in a case or sold to the highest bidder. Tip: If it's hard to find ammo for, don't shoot it! Glocks are much safer.

Can 5.56 ammunition be fired in a 223 rifle?

.223 Remington ammunition can be fired safely in a 5.56x45 rifle; 5.56x45 ammunition cannot be safely fired in a .223 rifle. In the case of some partially imported rifles, they are marked .223 Remington in spite of having 5.56 chambers. This is done for compliance with BATFE laws regarding importation of certain firearms types. If in doubt about the compatibility, call the manufacturer - they're the ones who would know best.

Can you use a lesser length shot shell in a larger chamber safely?

You should always use the intended ammunition in your firearms. If you are unsure about what ammunition the weapon is constructed to use contact the manufacturer or seek help from a professional gunsmith. In a shotgun it is less dangerous to use a shell that is shorter than a shell that is longer than the intended length of the ammunition but it may still pose a risk.

What ammunition does a J Stevens Arms and Tool gun marked 44 smooth use?

J Stevens made several models of pistol and rifle through the late 19th to the middle 20th century which were chambered for a variety of calibers. Short barrel pistols and shotguns were part of the line. It sounds like you may have a smooth bore barrel which was designed for shot shells. It may be center fire or rim fire as both were available during Steven's manufacturing life. I recommend that you have the gun inspected by a gun smith to determine the condition and what type of ammunition can safely be fired through the gun. What you need may be available or it may be obsolete.

How do you know if ammunition is too old to fire safely?

Primarily by the outward appearance of the ammunition and its packaging. Evidence of corrosion, water staining, etc, may be an indicator of problem ammo. However, ammo that has been stored in cool, dry conditions seems to have a VERY long shelf life. I am currently shooting up 60 yr old 8mm Mauser ammo, which works fine.
