Have something for a 44 I will never use. Speer plastic cases and plastic projectiles . Load with a primer only for close practice drill. Free to a good home that will put them to good use. If you have a kid/grandkid that would benefit from using/shooting these, you move to the top of the list! IMG_4470.JPG IMG_4472.JPG

I got a couple of kids that need to be peppered in the ass with one of those from time to time.
I would take them but I have a setup for the 45's.

generous offer, someone can use them.

They are more potent than most people would think.
Even in 38's, they will penetrate 2 thicknesses of
cardboard at 15 or so feet. Good indoor practice,
but definitely not a toy.

If no one else wants them I will take them, but only to measure them. Then I will pass them back along here.

I've been thinking about making some plastic bullets for indoor practice and these would make a good model.

Keith - couple (maybe better) options for you. There are a cpl extra projectiles. I can just send you one of those if that works, or just mic a few and give you dimensions. Your call.

Keith - Pls let me know what works best for you to get your measurements.

Ric - either way, sounds like you get them in the end. Will do my heart good to know they found a home in a 44 Russian break-top! If it's an original, you have to send me pix!

If I just had one case and one bullet to examine and measure that would be all I need. I'd be glad to send it on to Ric.

Yep, it is known as an "old, old model" one of the first double action ones with a very uncommon 4" barrel. Try to get a picture out today. Now I am only shooting it once a year because I'm lazy about cleaning black powder. With these I could shoot it more. Ric
