.38-40 Colt Six Shooter-What is the killing range of the .38-40 Colt six shooter, with a 7 ½ inch barrel?
It is impossible to state exactly the killing range of any pistol or rifle, as it, like the term “accuracy” as applied to the shooting of firearms, depends largely on the definition of the term, both being indeterminable. A firearm of any kind may fail to kill sometimes at very short range, and again, by chance shots, may kill game that is supposed to be out of range. If one could hit the right spot, I should say that with this pistol he could kill deer and similar game at 150 or 200 yards. Big game has been killed with Colt revolvers at such distances.
