I am curious, what is your favorite bullet weight in .44Mag?
Favorite type of bullet?
This is not fair! I like both the 300-grainer AND 180-grainer.
It's a nice round number.
I like semi-jacketed hollow point .240 grain.
Ummmm...wouldn't that depend on the purpose?
240. It is was I use for all of my .44 Magnum and Special target and "play" loads. For hauling around on woods duty/hunting I might prefer a 275 or 300, but for all other chores the 240 is adequate.
Of course. I am just asking what you shoot the most of...or like to shoot the most.
I use a 320 Gr. cast.
I prefer 240 since all I hunt with my 629 are two legged predators.
I have two 44 mags...and they both keep Speer 240grainers in the cylinder. I also practice with 240gr rounds. So, for my purposes, the 240gr is great. It really all depends on what you intend to do with the round as to what bullet size would be your favorite.
I love shooting the 180gr. It shoots flat and velocity is high.
I shoot 240gr. Winchester Jacketed Soft point in my Ruger Redhawk.
Technically my fave is the 250 grain keith bullet but they're hard to find, so I settle for the 240 grainers. I buy mine from Meister. $40 for 500 of 'em.
I use the 240, in Remingtons floral pattern JHP, in a hard cast SWC and sometimes in a JSP. I do two loads, one at about 1000 fps and the other is a bit warm. But I only use the 240's. Yes, I still have some 180's, they are hot but I am stuck on the 240's... You will find a place that is good for you.;a
Keep 'em coming! I want everyone to vote, I am trying to get a concensus of as many .44 fans as possible.
Does this mean we can look for a Double Tap .44 load? I would certainly be interested.
Always preferred the 240gr. for an all around load.
Years ago,when I still reloaded,I used a 240gr.Hornady half jacket soft point.Put a few deer on the ground with it.
