I obtained a copy of a Lancaster catalog from 1893, and wonder about the ammo fired from the various Lancaster “howdah” pistols.
The .455 bore weapon could also fire a shot load – would someone know a typical loading (pellet size and number, muzzle velocity) for this? Apparently it was made both by Eley and Kynoch.
The smaller models could fire .360 and .380 CF cartridges. What were there exact designations? Where they compatible with any other cartridges, especially the various Colt and S&W patterns?
