    Not if by "okay" you mean will function directly as Sam Colt intended. :rolleyes:

    No .38/.357 and .44 mag are two COMPLETELY different rounds and are NOT interchangeable.

    Sure, you could PROBABLY fire a lone .38 slug down the barrel of your .44 magnum if a Terminator was after you and that was the absolute last round you had before you were smashed to bits. :cool:

    Outside of that, not so much.

    The problem with trolls is it's really tough to call it on a first post.

    Why don't you go over to the Introductions section and let us know a little about you.

    This will improve my detection ratio.

    when you buy ammo"bullets" always get ammo thats says the same thing the barrel of the gun say the only time this is not true is when your shoot ammo from the parent cartridge like 44 special in 44 mag 38 special in 357 and several rifles cartridges but if your a troll do what want
