The first M 1894 Winchester lever action rifle and the 38-55 cartridge

The Model 1894 Winchester rifle is an icon. It is less known that is started its career as a rifle shooting black powder cartridges. Learn the history of John Moses Browning’s excellent design and the 38-55 cartridge while I burn some powder testing the faithful Uberti replicating exactly this first model. 50-300 m shooting, ballistics, accuracy, joy. 🙂
