False. 44 Mag produces more than double the pressure of the .45 LC. Very dangerous. Don't listen to idiots, guns shops are unfortunately full of them. :TFH:

I hope this was a customer who said this and not an employee!

Thanks for the heads up! He had on one of their shirts but he wasn't behind the counter so I couldn't tell you if he was or wasn't an employee........... I found it odd that he would say a 44mag in 45lc would shoot together..........however those are are two different rounds besides the diameter right?????????

.44 magnum can shoot .44 special. Not the other way around.

.45 LC can be fired in a .454 casull chamber, but not the other way around.

Also don't forget that you can put a 45 acp cylinder on a 454 casull and shoot it. You will need half moon clips thow.

I hate those self proclaimed experts. The "best" part is, they seem so confident as if they are the authority on it.

next time, ask the guy to show you with his own guns. he will give you some other crap, and then..... if you insist, he will give you some excuses, then disappear to and no where to be found.
