    I'm thinking of working up some hunting loads for both a Colt Python in 357 and a Ruger Redhawk 44 Magnum. Beartooth has 180 grn to 210 grn in 357 and 300-325 grains for the 44 that look intriguing. Has anyone out there on the forum used these for hunting purposes? I've seen loads using the 325grn in 44 @ 1300 fps and I'd bet the penetration is excellent. I've shot both deer and pigs with the 357 and 44 but with lighter jacketed bullets. Comments and suggestions are appreciated!

    Speer dropped the TBBC line. Federal is supposed to be coming out with updated line.

    I still have a supply of Beartooth for the 357 & 44. I loaded some up for the 44 on a bear hunt but the 300wsm did the job. They know their stuff at beartooth & a great source. I used the common win 296/H-110 for the loadings.

    I just finished reading Elmer Keith's bio. He liked the heavy bullets and Beartooth has some that are his designs. Maybe it's just a bit of nostalgia but I have an urge to give some a try.
