This doesn't seem to fit anywhere, exactly.
Move it if you have a better place.
I bought a new ( to me ) .44 mag barrel for my TC at a gun show a few weeks ago.
I wanted to try it out to see how accurate it might be but I didn't have any suitable loads and no empty brass.
I did have two partial boxes of hunting loads that were loaded around 1970. Much too old to trust on an expensive hunting trip so I decided to empty them and use those cases for my test loads.
The loads were 12.5 grains herco and 21 grains 2400 with a Lyman 429421 Hollow point. Weight = 232 grains.
I started with the 2400 loads in my ruger Black Hawk and was pleasantly surprised. They were grouping under three inches at 25 yards with factory sights. That is about as good as I can see.
I switched to the TC and was really surprised. Three five shot groups came in at 1.68, 1.92, and 1.60.
Well they were all gone so I opened the Herco loads and was totally shocked. It was always my favorite load because of accuracy but the first five shot group made only one ragged hole. That is .38 Special factory wad cutter grouping. The second five shot group also mad a single ragged hole. ( This ammo is 40 years old and has been stored in a Texas garage. ) The third group was more believable but it measured only 1.12 inches.
I wouldn't shoot someone elses 40 year reloads but I kept 20 of the Herco loads just in case.
PS That group on the left is upside down.
