    What I was talking about is semi-wadcutter with gas checks, What my concern is when the rifle is loaded up are there a chance of the bullets in the tub going off

    Round or flat nosed bullets should not be an issue. I have yet to see a .357 round that had enough of a point to dent a primer. But I am not an expert on reloading.

    Might not want to get 'em wet in the tub though. :eek:

    Always thought the '94 was a rifle cartridge, .30-30... "92 was the pistol caliber. Don't think I'm wrong, but it would not be the 1st time.

    As far as I'm aware the Winchester 1894 Models are chambered in 30-30. The Winchester Model 1892s come in .357 magnum.

    JP,Winchester made the 94 in Pistol calibers too.

    I have a 94AE 44 Magnum with a 24" barrel.It's the bottom rifle in the pic.

    Why? my 1892 .44-40 also has a 24" barrel, but hex. Just a little redundent?

    The '94 was designed for a rifle style cartridge but was adapted to acomadate (sp) the revolver cartridges in modern times - many will argue it does not work that great :(

    To me it seems redundent. I'd rather have my Winchester 94 chambered in 30-30 than a pistol cartridge, but that's just me.

    It's nice to have a rifle chambered in the same caliber as your hunting handguns.It gives you a few more options when the game doesn't want to get into pistol range.

    No Chance re chain reaction ; I agree the 94 action not agreeable to pistol rounds though
    just my 2 cents.
