Good, and helpful observations!  Too, also remember that case capacity will be somewhat impaired with the unfired new brass... use fire-formed brass for full-snort heavy loads.  Not only will the case capacity be different after firing, but the brass case will center better in the chamber, and contribute to more uniform accuracy.

Also, be careful when crimping the .38-40, as too much of a good thing can cause a case-neck collapse as well.

One last thought... most of these guns seem to shoot best with a .401" diameter bullet if shooting cast!

Happy loading and God Bless,
