    Never was a question.

    I won't tell ya it did not have more recoil, then either.

    Actually, the non expanding projectile made a bigger entrance hole than expanding
    .32 bullets have, in my shooting anyway.

    .327 HP VS SP

    I have been shooting such ammo for some time now and have come to the
    conclusion that the HP is not really needed and that the HP was produced
    just to sell more ammo because most people are indoctrinated to believe SD applications
    require HP ammo.


    100 gr SP .327 penetrates better than HP and the SP ammo will expand to .5 inches and
    in one penetration test I did, .327 100 gr SP out penetrated .357 sp.


    The only advantage, possibly, to .327 HP self defense ammo is that it has nickel plated brass;
    if that is really an advantage.

    Could not stand it anymore, hit the forest and shot a milk jug with .44 mag since it is deer season. 


    Only critters out were mosquitoes.

    I was wondering about them too; maybe they knew it was soon to be colder and they 
    have moved toward winter quarters.

    Clean went to volunteer; so, as soon as it got out of the 20's and passed through the 30's into the mid 40's I headed out to shoot.

    The 629 had shot 4 inches low last time and I had raised the rear sight a quarter turn and needed to try it. The revolver shot well enough with both .44 special and mag.


    I then needed a reload so I took the ammo tray out of the box and put it on the bike seat.

    So, guess what happened; yep, the tray fell off the seat and scattered rounds in the grass and leaf litter. Took awhile, but, I accounted for all 31 rnds I had taken with me.

    You need a flat stump near by.

    One of those three legged folding camp stools would be convenient to put the ammo on and it wouldn't spill on the ground. And you could move the ammo and sit down and enjoy the sights and sounds of the woods when you got done shooting or needed a break.

    I don't wear pants or a skirt-----I wear trousers like a man should!

    I ain't gonna post who wears pants, especially in USMC terminology!

    Ha! "Trousers" are, at best, uncomfortable - at least to "REAL" men! :D ;)

    I wear blue jeans. Anyway, something that popped into my head on the subject of pants/trousers in general. CARGO SHORTS/PANTS are the men's equivalent of a purse for women, but more organized than a woman's purse, mostly.

    I got some of those cargo things----------put stuff in the cargo pocket and cannot get it out fast.

    Had utility uniform trousers, all the cargo pocket was good for in garrison was it caught on things and the pocket ripped.

    I heard the cargo pocket was good for carrying grenades they never let me have grenades.
    Just a .38 revolver loaded with signaling ammo and that was tied into my survival vest.

    Snake we did carry bombs and rockets; but, the only time I went into North Vietnam it was a night photo mission; that is not counting the time my pilot had his head up his - - -  and went joy riding.

    Yeah, every now and then one of those sierra hotel pilots show up...

    Generally that guy was an excellent stick and safe; I flew a bunch of missions at night down in the weeds with him. Just had to watch all of them.

    Been shooting a Redhawk .44 mag with .44 special---------I think I'd rather shoot a S&W.

    Like Chief's .44 special.

    I don't know Ca Ca about redhawks but if they're half as smooth as a S&W, they're good. I like the looks of these Bull Dog 44 Specials that have been around forever, but when I do finally bite the bullet and get me a 44 it will be a Magnum Smith.

    I'v been to the range more in the last 18 months than the last 30 years combined.
    The new indoor range just 10 minutes from my house is just too convenient to pass up.
    However, I now suffer from pain and stiffness in my right hand and have reduced the frequency of visits. Nothing big, 90% 9mm 10% 45/10mm. I'm sure my age is becoming
    an issue, anybody experience this?

    The Redhawk is harder to blow up... ;)
    But more seriously, I'm curious why you'd prefer the S&W. Better ergonomics?

    Must be. I shoot better with a 629 or the 610 that is built on a 629 except for the size of the holes.
