  1. I did some 44 Magnum testing with the chronograph today. The results are... 5.8 grains of Red Dot = 820 FPS 6 grains of Trail Boss = 785 FPS 5.5 grains of HP-38 = 628 FPS 4.7 grains of Titegroup = 733 FPS These are averages shot out of a Ruger with a 5 1/2" barrel. 240 grain SWC and Federal 150 primer.
  2. I used to race stock cars. I told the crew when it got to be work and not fun we were done. Like I said, I used to race. Life is too short to do something that is fun and not enjoy it.
  3. That's what I'm thinking. I'm doing this for fun and those guys didn't seem like they were having much fun.
  4. I had 4.8 grains of Titegroup when they were complaining that I was too hot. I'm afraid to cut it back much more.
  5. I used the same loads at Plum Creek and it wasn't a problem.
  6. My target is for my own tests and denting it isn't the problem. I have no control over the targets at our local matches which I did damage. I'm sure the guy who yelled at me for damaging their targets thinks I should shoot a 38 Special like he does. I just need to know that I have my 44 loads correct. Happy Thanksgiving!
  7. The load I had been using was 4.8 grains of Titegroup with a 240 gn swc Starline 44 Mag casing with a regular Federal large pistol primer.
  8. I just grabbed a thick piece of mild steel of the scrap and leaned it up at 7 yards.
  9. I have a few Specials. They run through the Marlin just fine. I can't really tell a difference. Using the same bullet, they have about the same recoil. Happy Thanksgiving to y'all!
  10. I don't have any Clays but I'll try to find some and give it a shot.
  11. I tried 6 grains of Trail Boss with the 240 gn SWC. The casing was full. I use Federal primers. It left a big bulge in my metal target.
  12. Hi. Abilene, I have Booyah Bullets. I live close to Dodge City Mike. My mistake may have been that I'm trying to shoot a 240 grain SWC. The recoil doesn't bother me. It's actually pretty light. I've used Titegroup, Red Dot, and Trail Boss. The issue is that they hit the target pretty hard. One left a descent ding in the metal. I'm looking to not tear up the targets. So I'm guessing I'm trying to toss to heavy amount of lead.
  13. I have 44 Vaquero's and a 94 Marlin. I've tried different combinations but haven't found the sweet spot. My loads just seem to hot. I have a lot of Magnum brass. I really don't want to switch to Special. Does anyone have a good recipe for 44 Magnum Cowboy loads?
