.38-55 High Power Cartridge
.38-55 High Power Cartridge-Would a .38-55 Winchester rifle, using the high power cartridges, be heavy enough for use in northern Saskatchewan, or for hunting grizzly bears?
I am not certain that the .38-55 high power cartridge can be used with safety in the Winchester rifle. This cartridge is made by the U.M.C. Co. and recommended by them for use in the Marlin, Savage and Winchester rifles, but the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. do not make such a cartridge, nor do they make any mention of it in their catalog. They make the High Velocity cartridge for their .38-55 caliber rifle and it has considerable power, but not nearly so much as the High Power cartridge of this caliber, used in the Marlin and Savage rifles. Before you attempt to use it, I would advise you to write to the Winchester people and ask them whether it is safe to do so. Either arm or cartridge is powerful enough for hunting the grizzly bear.
