    I load for my S&W 629-2 6" and my Henry Big Boy brass. For my 629 after lots of tria l and error I've settled on 8.5 gr Unique with the RCBS 44-250 swc for general shooting and 9.5 gr for hunting. Book it alloy is acww with touch of tin. For my Henry the load is a NOE 432-265 wfngc over 21 gr H110 for 1700 fps and t he alloy is 50/50 ww/pure lead and 2% tin. My goal this year is to get my first handgun deer kill with my Smith.
