Those two are kind of brand new to me and I love showing them in my shelf display, in doing so I did put snap cap ammo in and found the following out.

The Schofield #3 does not match any of the ammo I have, 45 short and acp, 44 magnum, 357magnum and 38 special... 44 Magnum is the closest (a bit short).

The Remington 1877 on the other hand fit's perfectly with 357 magnum...

Well, so they are good reproduction, but not to that extent...OK, still love them

From what I read and listen they were originaly both 45 caliber, is'nt it ??? It's kind of messy, 45 short, 45 long, 44-40... :rolleyes:

The Schofield cylinder chambers are shorter than either the Remy 1875 or Colt Peacemaker (also shorter than the S&W .357 Magnum), that caused problems to the U.S. Army when they were introduced. Here are some dimensions I compiled:

The ''real'' .357 Magnum shell diameter is .379''. The long Colt shell is .480'' at the base. The Schofield shell is .477'' at the base. The Remy 1875 have been made in .44 Rem and .45 LC. The .44 Rem shell is .448'' at the base.

The CO2 Dan Wesson .357 shells are .3845'' in diameter at the base (near the rim).

The CO2 Remington 1875 shells are .3825''.

The CO2 Colt Peacemaker shells are .403''.

The CO2 S&W Schofield shells are .3805''.

So no, the CO2 replicas are not perfectly accurate to the ''real'' guns. The .357 is the closest, but even then, not identical 100%. Anyways, as you said, we love them nonetheless!

Cheers, and happy shooting :drinkers:

If everything's so lovely yeah, then why don't I, why don't I, why don't I, why don't I feel lovely?
