I really want a Handi in .375 Winchester, but there is no chance of finding one. Can you safely fire .375 Winchester cartridges in the .38-55 BC barrel? Are the bore diameters the same? I know the .375 is slightly shorter, but how much?

Tim,

I wonder if that is based more on the fact that a lot of guns chambered in the .38-55 won't handle .375 chamber pressures. I know the Handi will handle even the hottest .375 Winchester loads, but I just don't know about shooting them in the .38-55 chamber.

I've been looking for a schematic on the .38-55 case, but haven't found one yet. If I can find one, it should be able to answer my question.

Well, the more I check in to it, its seems it would be a lot easier to simply stick with the .38-55 cartridge. It can be loaded just as hot as the .375, and brass seems to be a little easier to find.

Anyone know what bore diameter H&R is using in the Target?
