. I'm not trying to be an asshole (it just comes naturally ;)).

I was joking, hence the wink. I'm really not trying to be an asshole, but it may appear that way sometimes to some people. And that's no joke.

A contender is nice way to say 'Bang'

Here's a 14" SSK Bbl in 444 Marlin
If shooting a large caliber,
Use two hands!
Thanks,

That A Hole J. D. Jones was why they had to come up with the G-2 and the Encore.
They were scared witless he'd blow some one up and They would get sued.    ;D

When the custom shop had .375 Winchester barrels I kept thinking that would be a good caliber to have for my Contender. But I don't reload and didn't think factory ammo would be all that great in a pistol. Eventually I quit hunting and didn't didn't have any use for it other than plinking, and there's cheaper ammo for that. Like .44 Magnum or .223 Remington. If I want to shoot it really cheap I have a chamber adaptor for .22 LR that fits in the .223 barrel. Then all I have to do is turn the selector on the hammer to rimfire instead of centerfire.

Here's a picture of 2 .375 Win. cartridges with a .38-55 and .308 between them for size comparison. It's more or less a .30-30 case necked up as far as it will go "stuffed with a hat-full of powder" as I saw another cartridge described in a gun magazine years ago.
