Deer Hunting with the .38-55 Winchester

Article examines the .38-55 for Deer Hunting.

While the .38-55 certainly is barely hanging onto its status of current production, Winchester Repeating Arms is offering a Davidson exclusive Winchester 1885 Single Shot in .38-55. However, at about $1250 the 1885 limited edition won't find its way into too many deer hunter's hands. Of course, older Winchester Model 94's and other older guns are still out there for those interested in this old cartridge. For the budget conscious hunter or shooter, there were recent production Model 94's and H R; Handi-Rifles chambered for this cartridge as well that will be less expensive than the decades old guns (According to Cartridges of the World, 9th Edition). Winchester also continues to offer one factory load for the cartridge. Black Hills and Buffalo Bore also offer loaded ammunition for the .38-55 Winchester.

The current Winchester factory load for the .38-55 pushes a 255 grain bullet out of the barrel at 1320 feet per second. This combination produces 987 foot pounds of energy at the muzzle, 802 foot pounds at 100 yards, and 674 foot pounds at 200 yards. While 1000 foot pounds of energy is considered a delivered to the target minimum for deer hunting energy, it is not a perfect rule. A well placed shot from the .38-55 is capable of humanely putting a deer in the freezer at 150 yards with this factory load and perhaps a little more. The key is a well placed shot. Hunters using a .38-55 or any other cartridge should practice a lot at estimating and shooting at various ranges to be able to surely place the shot where it needs to be. One concern that a shooter needs to be aware of is that of bullet diameter. Barrels were cut slightly differently and vary from the .375 used in the Winchester load. Handloaders (carefully working up a load that is safe for their gun) can improve the ballistics of the .38-55 above what the factory load will do.

Of course, before shooting or hunting with an old .38-55 or any other old rifle have it checked by a competent gunsmith for safety. Also many older guns might very valuable. If you have an old gun have it appraised to determine what it is worth so you can determine whether or not you want to risk damaging it.

The .38-55 Winchester would be an appealing cartridge for those hunters who like to carry something a little different into the deer woods. If you are lucky enough to have an old .38-55 Winchester in the gun cabinet get it out and take it hunting.
