I have an older New Model Single Six Bisley that I inhereted from my father. I am trying to determine if the cylinder is chambered for 22LR or 22 magnum. The gun has a stainless cylinder which I don't think came from the factory. When I shoot 22LR through it I get a casing that ruptures along the side wall about 1 in 20 rounds. I have not tried any magnums in it. How can I tell if it us a LR or Magnum cylinder. Could the rupturing casings be from shooting LR in a mag cylinder? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
