    44 Specials shoot very nicely in these. Or 44 Special equivalents in 44 magnum cases. The parent cartridge, the 44 Russian, was known to be a very accurate round.

    That occurred to me as well.

    Then you can have some more fun. Have him make some lighter loads. At the range, load her 5 of those and one magnum round. :)

    You got the right one. 7.5 would be more weight, and not as balanced?

    Nice choice of handgun and way to show some son to mom love! One of my fondest memories of my mom is when I was out back of my folks house shooting my then new Match Champion and my mom who was usually indifferent about shooting, insisted on shooting a few cylinders with me. Mom could shoot too! Enjoy making those memories with her OP!

    I’m tellin ya! What sucks is Walmart around here isn’t selling handgun ammo anymore. Cabelas and the small gun shops are always higher than hell, probably more so now.

    The online places I’ve looked haven't been very promising. Found a bunch of hollow point stuff but not much ball ammo. Haven’t looked to see what brass ect is available yet to roll my own.

    Yeah buddy, we are in some surely uncertain times. This is the biggest wake up call to people that dont roll their own. Thankfully, i`ve been buying for decades, so i`m good for a long time, or until i die.
