    Buckshot replied to a thread 1892 Winchester barrels in Leverguns
    ...............My thanks for the reply. What I have is a Rossi 92 with a 45 Colt x 24" octagon barrel. With some loads it's acceptably accurate. It's barrel slugs .446" x .450", so it is tight but the grooves are only .002" deep. With quite a few...

    ..............One my 2 Rossi M92's the twin lugs reach up to just above the sides of the action top. There is a couple thousandths 'Play' if you pull the bolt back against the twin lugs. However I think in chambering a round the lugs are pushed back...

    It is spelled Whelen, not Whalen. Just saying. I have had two Remington 700 Classic rifles in this chambering. One was just so much fun I got a second when it came up for sale. I had great loads made up for both Jacket and cast for elk hunting. ...
