C&B REVOLVER BULLETS

I have some 44 cal conical bullets. I could never load them in my Remington because the first sealing ring would not enter the cylinder, so the bullet could not be positioned under the ram. I filed down the ring so the bullet enter to the second ring and will now go under the ram. However I have not fired with this arrangement. Is this safe? I have fired lots of ball bullets.
But, I would bet that, if it is made of lead and you can cram it in the chamber, it will fire ok.
Accuracy may be lousy, since you had to file the base. On all bullets, the base affects accuracy. Damage to the nose and even minor defects in the side of a bullet will not generally affect accuracy, but defects to the base will.
My Remington .36 won't accept the Lee conical bullet. There's not enough room to get the bullet under the rammer. I shoot nothing but balls with it.
