.44 Colt ammo interchangeability?

Post by tector » Mon Jan 26, 2015 2:15 am

Somehow I came into possession of a box of Black Hills .44 Colt ammo. My understanding is that real old time .44 Colt ammo is NOT interchangeable with a .44 mag/ .44 sp., but that modern manufacture is.

Yes or no?

Modern .44 Colt shoots fine in .44 Special......the original .44 Colt used a (larger diameter) heel-based bullet.....

at about $2/round plus shipping do you still want to shoot it in your smoke wagon? http://www.ammo-one.com/44Colt.html

Well I suppose I could bang on it with a hammer....

What is the point of ammo but to shoot it? Besides hoarding it and then reselling it at a great profit when the President Hillary panic sets in, I mean.
