Smokeless loads in 1886 Winchester

centerfiremancenterfireman Member Posts: 70 ✭✭
I have an 1886 Winchester in .40-65, built in 1889. I have received conflicting information about whether or not it is safe to shoot smokeless (Cowboy) loads in it. I know that it was designed to shoot blackpowder but have been told that the 1886 is a very strong rifle that can safely handle smokeless loads. Suggestions?
