Very true. I used to shoot my 44mags a lot, like 100rds of full power ammo a week. Enough to mess up the forcing cone in my first RSBH ashooting jacketed. Now I shoot maybe 50rds a month, mostly midrange stuff, all lead. I enjoy the M29 in any flavor but really like the 4" guns. If I could only have one handgun, it would be a 4" M29. Mild to wild, mice to moose, concealable & with good 250grLSWCHP @ 925fps, a definitive man stopper.
Caliber Corner
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
