.44 or .405

Postby R-Dhillon » Wed Aug 13, 2008 12:40 am

My quest for a big bore rifle continues and now I'm confused between a winchester .405 clutch action and a winchester .44 clutch action rifle...I'm getting 50 fresh rounds of .44 free with the rifle and the dealer claims that he can get me 100 cartridges at one time(when ever needed)...but the dealer of the .405 wont provide ammo....Please help me decide....
Regards,
R.Dhillon...

Both the rifles are crap .But they sell beacuse we Indians are ready to buy any imported junk ....405 ammunition is virtually impossible to find....and 44 bore is avaiable at 95 each round....but for how long...try for better bores whose ammo is easily available. 405 is meant for elephants and what purpose it would serve for you?

Dont go after the word big bore...its impressive but some dealer is going to make you buy some piece of junk.If you are still keen on a 405 Rifle a frend of mine wishes too sell his DB 405 H"less rifle .The rifle is priced at 95000/- (5000 for the rifle and 90000/- my commission).....

What in the world is a "clutch action"? First time I've come across this particular term...

BTW Clint Eastwood used a .44 Magnum revolver in the Dirty Harry series, not a rifle...

Cheers!

By clutch action, do you mean lever action?

I'm thinking the 405 would be a model 1895:

A .405 Winchester would be a model 1895 LEVER action. A .44 could be either a model 92 in caliber .44-40, a nice rifle but not a powerful caliber, 200 grain bullet at 1330 fps. It could even be the older model 1873. Or it could be a late model 94 in .44 Magnum, more powerful, but not a good action/cartridge combination, as the model 94 was designed for a .30-30 size cartridge. Neither of the three is crap, though for a while in the sixties the model 94 was a poor excuse. Another thing to consider, the original M1895 will not feed the current flat-point ammo from the magazine, only the original round-nose or current pointed-nose ammo. The current, japanese-made, M1895 will feed the flat-point as well as the others. Why Hornady came out with a flat-point bullet when they reintroduced the .405 Winchester is a mystery. Cheers
