    Well, Ray, only if the boolit is rifled in the opposite direction of the rifling barrel.

    Thanks for posting that picture.

    Now I know what Girty got stuck in her foot while we were cooking our breakfast by Bad Water creek in death Valley.

    Dug the A A loaded cartridge loose and tossed it into the camp fire.

    That sucker was so powerful it blew my gallon coffee pot 100 yards away but thankfully did not spill a drop of brew.

    Talk about lucky.

    That is a wildcat made from the .38-45 Polish Short Magnum. There are chambering issues with the configuration.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    It was rumored that Doctor Asperly what working on a clamshell action that could easily chamber this configuration but adding the automatic C Clamp proved cumbersome
    Word was that during testing a prototype exploded in the face a young good looking apprentice named Danny Trejo

    I'm surprised none of you are familiar with the Asperly Patented Reverse Bottle-neck Chamber. It allowed the shooter to load fixed cartridge ammunition from the muzzle.
    Warning: I know Judo. If you force me to prove it I'll shoot you.

    That was for the adaption of the fellow that patented the piston ring compressor. After chambering you tightened up the chamber with a series of bands then shot it.
