    View attachment 37874 Well here is a question I hope someone will be able to have an answer to.
    Has anyone handloading 44 Cal .430 225 gr FTX® (44 Mag) in a 8 inch revolver. I haven't looked at the C.O.L. yet or wheather or not the shape of the bullet will have issues with bearing surface resistance, which unless someone has already tried this and can report some problems, I will be looking into test firing some of these in my S&W Classic 29 with its 8-3/8" bbl. Just thought I would throw it out here to see if anyone has thought what nice handgun hunting round this might make.
