A: Hi Don! I regret that we do not currently have 38-55 WCF ammunition in stock. When you search for it, you do want to make very certain you don't order 38 Special or 38 Super, as they are both very different cartridges. We're in the midst of an ammo drought right now, but I suspect you'll find some good options available online. The 38-55 WCF is not the most popular cartridge, so the hoardes of people stocking up right now have very likely omitted it from their stockpiles. I'd especially recommend HSM's Cowboy line of ammunition with a 240 grain round nose flat point bullet – your lever-action should eat that right up! I believe Winchester also offers a good 255 grain soft point round that you could use for self-defense/hunting.

A: Hello Bobby,
Your best bet would be to check the owner's manual or contact Colt and verify if that gun can fire +P ammo. Once you find out, let us know and we can see what we have for you!

A: Hello Bob,
.38 Super is a semi-auto caliber and is not interchangeable with .38 Special and cannot be fired in a revolver or any other firearm chambered in .38 Special or .357 Magnum. .
