Cartridges for Coyotes-What bad effect will the 38-55 smokeless, soft nosed, Winchester cartridge have on the same size and make of rifles, 1894 model, with about one twist in the entire 26-inch barrel? Could I use the 38-55 smokeless high power cartridge without danger to rifle? Which cartridges are best for coyotes?
You will find the cartridge mentioned, to be all right for coyotes, and the Winchester people say that if the gun is one of their 1894 models it will not be injured by that cartridge providing the arm is in good condition. You must be mistaken about the pitch of the rifling as they say that they give the .38-55 a twist of one turn in 18 inches.
