    Neat gun
    Kind of reminds me of Johnny Cash's ONE PIECE AT A TIME

    Believe or not they work for me!  I have a smaller hand so the big stocks are a challenge.

    So went to the range today and test fired it with some downloaded .44 mag Cowboy ammo and it worked as advertised.  The stuff is not particularly accurate on any of my guns but it’s loaded nice and mild.  The group was good but I was not trying real hard for just function testing.

    Then I loaded a cylinder full of my favorite commercial .44 mag handgun hunting ammo, Remington 180gr JSP.  From just under 15 yards away offhand single action.  The flier was the 5 shot, I ABSOLUTELY choked and called it.  

    The other 5 shots, well I’ll let the picture speak for itself.  It’s a snappy gun with the light barrel, but it puts them where I ask her to put them.

    I’d been shooting a bunch of other guns already for 2 hours so I called it good and headed home to clean her.   When I get back I’ll be hand loading for this one!!!!!

    😁

    Very nice!  And its a shooter as well.

    Trail Boss under cast lead slugs makes a nice 44mag light. Unique makes nice medium to heavy loads as does Power Pistol. 2400 as always, is great for cast lead heavy loads. I'd guess those Rem 180gr factory jhp's would be easy to duplicate. 

    It seems like the 44's aren't picky about speed for accuracy.

    I’ll be ordering some powders I don’t have next week.  And then I’ll get my reloading setup back online now that I have bench again.  Trail boss is one powder I’ve never played with and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.    

    You might be right.  All my .44s are good shooters but this one has the potential of being exceptional!  I can see where the pet project will be ringing steel offhand at 100 yards for fun 😁

    That looks like it's going to be a fun multi use gun. And a 'You suck!' is in order!  :) Shooting with .44 Special loads should be a LOT of fun!

    Yep, I can’t wait to get some target loads going for it.  This will be seeing a lot of range time...
