I have test fired my 1883 by reloadng .44 Rem.Mag. cases trimmed to .970" with a powder charge of 20.5gr of FFFg black powder and a 240gr.RN lead bullet sized to .430". with a loaded length of 1.380".

This gives a muzzle velocity approx. 670fps

Friends,
Some years ago I had placed an ad in DWJ to get an old rusty cylinder for metallurgical analysis. I was surprised how many broken M/83 cylinders were offered to me.
One told me that it has happened with .44 Russian Amo, made by Fiocchi.
