I admire your Grandfather's taste and he must have taken allot of personal pride in owning that rifle. It shows by the way he cared for it and rightfully so it is simply a stunning example of what Stevens produced. Do you happen to have the paperwork from when he purchased the rifle.

Didn't Ned Roberts write that he had problems with 44's in 38/55 ?

Nice to see this particular gun topic brought back up again. I think this is a neat old gun and shooting kit, and hope you're careful shooting smokeless loads in it, so it's still around in another century in your family!

No paperwork or anything like that unfortunately.

I've only shot this one with something like 19-20 gr of IMR4198 and 250gr cast bullets. It's lite and the load was worked just to the point that it stopped sooting the case. It was still pretty accurate for what I was doing. Nothing like it was probably capable of with the right loads and bullets. I don't shoot it much but I did a lot of looking to find the lowest pressure that would still get a bullet down the bore.
