As I read the book, the 1894 should be able to handle either of these cartridges. I'd have a good gunsmith check it over to see if there is something worn in the ejector mechanism. Sometimes a particular rifle just doesn't like certain brands of ammunition, so you might want to try a box made by a different manufacturer.

Can you use 38 special ammo in a 357 sig 239 handgun?

No. 357 SIG and 357 Magnum are two very different cartridges. You can use .38 Special in a .357 magnum gun, but not 357 SIG Adding to the above, the compatibility of .38 Special and .357 Magnum applies only to revolvers. You cannot cycle .38 Special in a magazine fed .357 Magnum lever action or semi automatic.

Can you shoot 38 caliber ammo in a 357 magnum pistol?

Yes, you can shoot38 Smith and Wesson specialammunition in any 357 magnum caliber firearm, with the exception of certain lever action rifles which might not feed the shorter 38 special cartridge.The 357 magnum cartridge is based on the 38 Smith and Wesson Special cartridge case, which is the "parent case". The magnum case is lengthened by .100 inch so that the magnum will not chamber (fit) into a 38 Smith and Wesson special firearm.However the 38 Smith and Wesson special will always fit into a 357 magnum chamber.The pressures generated upon firing the 357 magnum cartridge are much higher than the 38 special, the maximum allowed pressures being 35,000 psi for the 357 magnum and 17,000 for the 38 special. For this reason it would not be safe to fire the 357 magnum in a 38 special chamber.The 38 special will not damage a 357 magnum firearm in any way, but firing 38 specials in a magnum chamber might allow dirt residue to build up in front of the shorter 38 special cartridge, eventually causing a problem chambering the longer 357 magnum once again. A cleaning of the chamber should solve this.

Can a 357 magnum fire 38 special ammo?

A .357 Magnum revolver can, as it uses cylinders and does not require headspacing between a cartridge and a chamber. Semi automatic, lever action, etc. .357 Magnum firearms which use a headspaced chamber cannot, however.

Can any 38 special shoot in any 357 magnum?

Yes. They are the same diameter, the .38 Special has a shorter case. The .357 is much more powerful than the hottest .38 Special. There are very rare .357 automatic pistols (such as the coonan) that will not cycle with .38 Special. There are also lever action rifles chambered in .357 Magnum. You should not attempt to cycle .38 Special cartridges through these, either.

Can 44 magnum be use in 44 special pistol?

No. The 44 Magnum cartridge is too long to fit a .44 Special firearm- and it is loaded much hotter than the .44 Special- unsafe to attempt. .44 Special CAN be safely fired from a .44 Magnum firearm, but not vice versa.
