The 442 is a great choice. That was the first one I intended to purchase, it's a story, but I ended up with the 642. I only ended up with the 340PD later because it was too good a deal to pass up. I wouldn't pay full price for a 340PD, but the 442 is worth every penny. Hogue makes a grip which has the same boot profile as the stock Uncle Mikes, but the Hogue is nicer by far.
How does the 442, 642, and the 340 PD handle the 158 grain LSWCHP +P? Or do you carry jacketed loads?
