Go with Clint's fav... a .44 AutoMag.

If you're less manly than he, go with the .375 version

LMAO! As a die hard Mack Bolan and Death Merchant reader I always wanted one as a kid.

No.

There have been some 38 Stupid's converted to wad guns that shoot 38 Special wad loads. Superlight springs, so they run with 148 wadcutters with 2.7/3.0 of Bullseye.

I horsetraded into a 1970's vintage Clark 38 Special 1911 wad gun like this. I stupidly traded it for something later. Might not have been too stupid, think it was a pre-64 M70 I traded for. S/F....Ken M

Not sure..... maybe I need to try short stroking it. It seems when I open the action all the way, as in to load a .357 shell, the shorter .38 gets cattywampus and pops up in the air.

Hmm.. I'm not able to right now, but if I remember I'll take a look at it. Maybe video the cycling and send it to you if you're interested.. It's the only gun that gets a silicon sock.. The rest I don't mind the occasional scratches, but it's just too much fun and kind of cowboy cool, and with .38s is quiet like a .22 and it's light...

I want to take a deer with it and .357s..

As you can tell I'm fond of it.

Far be it from me to mention, but perhaps commentary about "short stroking it" should be avoided, lest someone more coarse make disparaging remarks about the stroker. S/F....Ken M

I have a newer full size one now. If memory serves me, the trapper with the big looping handle was the one I had issues with. I will have to try the new with the .38's. Which model do you have?

Not quite sure.. It's an older one, pre-safety on the bolt, dark wood. 20" barrel. The loading gate is stiff, trigger is decent. Completely stock. It'll be a while before I can get you more info.

I have been shooting the Winchester 130gn flat nose fmj..

The little .38 has fit a pocket for many people, for many years.

Great trading material, take a pile to the range, somebody will bite.

Bullet profile would probably have a lot to do with feeding reliability as well
