    I recently inherited a Savage 24V .357/20 ga O/U ...
    Would it be alright to use .38 special ammo in it ?

    Thanks for any and all input.

    No,...to old,...could be dangerous. You should sell it to me instead!!

    Really,...yes you can,...but the shorter length of the .38 Special can leave a burn ring in the chamber that you'll need to clean to get good accuracy from the .357's you may use later. Just a maintenance issue. Enjoy that gun!

    Nice - that's a sweet combination.

    Accuracy.

    I'd be interested in knowing what kind of accuracy you get with the rifle, whether shooting .38 Special or .357. I've always liked rifles like the one you have. I just never knew what kind of accuracy one could expect.

    I fired it today w/ both .357 and .38's ... it's a sweet shooter almost w/o recoil, and very accurate to. Probably because it is so well made ... thanks for the input y'all ...
