Question Cimarron Remington 1875 Outlaw

Just got one of these, a Remington 1875 "Outlaw" clone by Uberti sold under the Cimarron brand, in .357 Magnum, with 7.5" barrel.

CIP and everything else stamped including "357 M" on barrel. My question for people who are familiar with modern Uberti cartrige SA clones is:

Would modern jacketed (FMJ) ammo be bad for this gun? Do not have any lead ammo on hand, no reloader (yes, I know), and in current conditions none to buy. For example 158gr Geco FMJ .38 Special and .357 Magnum? These .38 Specials are rated 968 ft/s and 321 ft.lbs. at muzzle, the .357 Magum is 1296 ft/s and 587 ft.lbs at muzzle. By far not cowboy loads but I'm thinking pressure wise they should be both fine, I am more worried about the jacketed part. Fine or not to shoot such FMJ in this 1875 Remington clone, what do people think?

Any other opinion or advice from people who own this model and shot it?

Beautiful Remington 1875! Load it up with any .38/.357 factory ammunition you find and fire away! Unless you are shooting homeloads that approach the power of a atomic bomb, you will not have any problems with that revolver. You will likely be better served with the standard 158 gr. .357 S&W Magnum loads as POI will be more likely POA. Sincerely. bruce.

I have always wondered why they put that piece of steel under the bbl? I was once told it was to strengthen the frame/barrel to make it stronger? Maybe a dumb question, but I do not know the answer. None of the other SAA have this. Thanks.

The 1863 percussion Remington had a rammer with the web. I'm guessing Remington wanted to reinforce the Remington "look."

I was told that the 'fin' or 'web' was kept on the 1875's ejector rod housing to facilitate re-holstering the revolver. Who knows??

They are beautiful.I have had two of them,both with the rare brass trigger guard.I traded the .45 colt off but kept the 44-40 to go along with my Schofield model 3,also in 44-40(Frank And Jesse's Guns,lol).Enjoy it.
