Yes, and you can shoot .44 Special out of a .44 magnum.
Absolutely. Check SAAMI interchange list.
Affirmative. But not the other way around.
The cartridge nomenclature system is pretty darn confusing, I must admit.
.380, .38, .357, 9mm. All just about the same diameter. Senseless, eh?
.480 Ruger and .475 Linebaugh, .458 Win and Lott, .38 Special and Magnum, .44 Russian, Special, and Magnum, .45 Colt, .454 Casull and .460 S&W, some more too.
Now why don't they work .44 Mag and .444 Marlin together? I don't see why it wouldn't already work, at least in a single shot or a revolver?
Yes & I reload them both with the same dies.Takes some adjusting but it saves on buying another set. What about "The Judge" 410 & 45 long colt.
.44 Mag and .444 Marlin together?
You really think so dar Pilgrim, didn't think that one through.
Base 444 is .469
Base 44 mag is .457
Enough pressure leakage to cause seriously cause eye, face and neck damage!
You can shoot .38's in a .357 magnum but be sure to clean your chambers well after you do because of the discharge ring the shorter case will leave behind, ditto .44 special and .44 magnum.
Interesting. Now I know. Note the whys and the question marks.
Yes but if you are using lead bullets you may find some lead build up near the end of the chambers. This will make it hard to insert .357 mag cartridges. No problem, just a good scrubbing with a brass brush will get it out of there. Shooting full magnum charges really isn't a whole lot fun after awhile. Besides, .38 special is cheaper.
you can shot out 357 38 short colt 38 long colt 38 sp 38 spl +p 38-44
