You'll love it!! Load up some moderate velocity ammo and it will be a pleasure to shoot. I shoot a 240 gr HC bullet over a moderate charge of Unique and it gets right at 1300 FPS from my 1894. With full power 44 Mags it will run ~1700 FPS.

Keep in mind that if you use the shorter 44 SPL brass you could build up a ring that may cause problems when you try to use 44 Mag ammo. I only use 44 Mag bras, no matter the load.
