.44-40 Shot Cartridges-Will shot cartridges prove satisfactory for small game when shot in a .44-40 Winchester Repeater, Model 1873? Will they injure the rifle barrel?
At very short range they are effective, but the rifling twist scatters the shot, and also the rifling leads up very fast. The leading does not hurt the barrel, but it’s hard work to clean the gun.
