310-gr LSWC in .44 Magnum

Postby Morne » Thu Sep 05, 2019 1:57 pm

Continuing with my trend of shooting heavy bare lead loads:


74 F, 30.07" Hg, 46%RH

.44 Magnum 310-gr LSWC 1.738-1.741" COAL
Taurus M44 with 6.5" barrel

16.7-gr Ramshot Enforcer powder CCI-350LPP(m) - AVERAGE = 1061 fps - ES = 65
17.4-gr Ramshot Enforcer powder CCI-350LPP(m) - AVERAGE = 1126 fps - ES = 86
17.7-gr Ramshot Enforcer powder CCI-350LPP(m) - AVERAGE = 1131 fps - ES = 73
18.2-gr Ramshot Enforcer powder CCI-350LPP(m) - AVERAGE = 1170 fps - ES = 84

All barked with authority and rang the steel gong very well. There's not a huge difference in extreme spread amongst them. If you were to choose from one of these loads which would you go with for a hunting round? I am sure any of them would pack enough wallop for any animal east of the Mississippi.

Once I settle on one of these I will load up some more and test in other barrel lengths.

Given the similar ES numbers, I'd have to see if any of them were more accurate than the others to make the call.
