Curious as to why choose the 38-55 vs the 375 Winchester? I know the 38-55 is longer but also tapered. Just curious.

I had a Half Pint sharps from taylors . It was defective so Taylors replaced it , I chose the Little Betsy , it was available in several calibers .
I chose. 38 55 , I never had one and I reload .

I shot it at an indoor range two days ago , she seems to work fine . The cowboy HSM loads had a nice bang and recoil , I don't know what powder they use , but it has a nice smoke to it .
