Loaded up some 44 special with 7.5 gr of power pistol and 8 gr with a 200 gr XTP. Shot at 10 yards with open sights, the load with 7.5 gr was nothing to write home about but the 8 gr charge was the goods in my model 29 44 mag. Gonna try it with 8.5 gr next time I get it out.
I bet it sounded like a howitzer going off indoors! LOL My GP 100 357 has a 4” barrel and will bust your eardrums without hearing protection with magnum loads outside. Can’t imagine how much worse it would be indoors.
I have a couple boxes of Speer 240 JSP deep curl bullets and thinkin about loading a few in my 444 Marlin to see how they shoot? I know Remington used to make a load for the 444 with a 240 gr JSP, I’m not sure how they’d hold up against a deer or bear at 444 velocities.
I saw this while reading the regs this morning, What a bunch of BS! I have 9 points for a deer tag I’ve Been trying to draw. I’m gonna have to think this over if I wanna waste the money on putting in for the draw this year? I’m pretty much done with Colorado at this point!!
