Why are there two diameter bullets listed?.429
Are they for specific guns? Or, will both work in all guns chambered for .44 Rem Mag?

Figure on your actual bore to be somewhere around .429" - .4295". .429-.430 jacketed bullets will be just fine.
With cast lead, we measure the pass-through diameter of the cylinder throats with pin gauges and size the bullets for that. Between Pops and I, the three Rugers after a bit of fire-lapping to achieve consistency, are all getting .432" bullets for their .429-.4295 bores. The S&W Mountain Gun has .428" throats - clearly geared for jacketed - not sure what its ultimate solution will be.

Won't make any difference which one you use.
And I gotta say it. "How soon we forget." Didn't we just finish shoving .358 bullets down a .357 barrel in the not too distant past? :tooth:
