2. The tubular magazines are not safe with pointed bullets.
Hornady Leverevolution solved that problem:)

***2. The tubular magazines of lever guns are not safe with pointed bullets. Think about it. :-) ***

I believe Remington developed a tubular rifle with a spiral indentation around the magazine which offset the bullet tip from the primer on the cartridge in front of it. I also believe some foreign nation used the tube magazine in a military rifle with the same spiral grove set up.

Can’t remember the names of them.
