Unfortunately I have no other 1894’s to mess with.Might be your lever too.
Do you have another M/94 to try a different lever?
If you remove the extractor-Is there any difference in feeding?
Same for the ejector.......
I would expect them to not feed well in a lever rifle and limited to use in a revolver.Does anyone use 240 gr semi wadcutters cast from lee dies in their 1894 44 mag? This is the bullet with the gas check. Some say that they won’t feed. Is there a way to help them feed properly? And what overall length are you using?
