I'd like to know if there are any things to look for besides timing & lock up to look for in using a .44 Special cylinder in a .44WCF SAA.
They are not a dual cylinder set, but do lock up properly & are timed correctly? Any dangers to look for? I don't want to damage either the .44WCF or the .44 Special cylinder. They are both 3rd gen copiew with swaged in cylinder bushings. The .44WCF has chamber throats allowing a .428 dia bullet to pass through with light pressure, but a .429 bullet will require a LOT of pressure. I use .428s in the .44WCF & would probably use that dia. with the .44 Special.
I thought if there were anyplace where someone has done this it'd be on this forum.
Thanks.

THE TWO CYLINDERS will NOT print their two common bullet weights [ 200GR in 44-40; 240-250 in 44SPL ] hardly within six inches of each other, give or take the odd furlong or so. They are 4 to 6 CLICKS UP OR DOWN apart in my COLT NF 44SPL/44-40 convertible.
And so it goes...
