    I usually shoot 158gr 357 SJSP in my 1894CPP. But with the ammo shortage, its pretty hard to find that round.

    At my dealer today, he had a bunch of Federal 130 gr 38 spl FMJ so I bought a case.

    How do you think it will work in my lever gun??

    Well it will function fine in your lever gun....whether your rifle likes them or not is a whole 'nother story. They should be soda can accurate for plinking.
