FIREARM and HUNTING QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is the velocity of the .44-40 when used in revolvers? Is the high velocity shell safe to shoot in the Colt's revolvers?
When shot from revolvers the .44-40 attains an average velocity of 1023 feet per second. The high velocity loads of some of the smaller rifle shells adapted to revolvers have been used in such, but it is decidedly not to be recommended.
What do you think of the .32-40 Marlin for reloading in short range and the high-power loads for all-round shooting where the largest game is deer?
It is my opinion that one could do no better in buying the gun named. This is one of the easiest cartridges to reload in existence and there are a suitable number of loads adapted to it that will amply take care of all the sorts of shooting one would expect of a rifle of this power. The Marlin model '93, which handles the .32-40, is a remarkably close shooting gun and will suit the most exacting user. This company are especially obliging in the lengths of barrels and magazines furnished without extra charge and when equipped with shotgun butt and half magazine a handsomer arm could not be wished for.
