Is there any reason .375 Win cartridges cannot be used in strong modern 38-55 rifles? Particularly the H&R taget rifle, but also Winchester and Marlins of modern production? You may wonder why not just load the 38-55 hotter, but the 375 brass is a lot stronger, I am told.
While I am on the H&R kick, can a handi-rifle in 44 mag be rechambered to 444? (I realise the recoil may be a little heavy)
thanks
Andy

Ribbonstone, you have exposed my ignorance on the 38-55s, I had just assumed (I know, I know) that they were just misnamed like all the other 38s of the period. The Handi rifles are made in 450 Marlin, so should be strong enough for the 444, as Mr Stanton has pointed out. Thank you both for your comments.
Andy
