New Winchester (Miroku) 92 loading problems
« on: October 30, 2021, 02:41:06 PM »
Got a new Winchester 92 take down in .357 magnum.  Initially tried to load it with my 158gr LSWC reloads and it was almost impossible to get the cartridges thru the loading gate into the magazine tube.  Made up some dummy 148 gr LRN cartridges and it was a little easier but still difficult.  Is this a common problem with the new Miroku 92s?  What projectile shapes seem to work best?  Loading gate seems to operate OK but this little bugger is hard to load.  I have an older '94 in 44mag and have no problems with it.

Update:  Made some dummy rds using Berry’s 125gr flat point bullets and the rifle is much easier to load.  Apparently it doesn’t like LSWC bullets.
