    44 mag Round Balls with 777 question

    Would loading round balls with triple 7 filled to the bottom of the ball be too much velocity for the ball to shoot accurately? Was thinking of seating the ball to the center and roll crimping. Should I seat flush with case to reduce powder ? Iíve loaded T7 with 240 grain lead and it shoots very well from my SRH but was thinking the round ball would be a fun plinker

    The round balls should be here this week. I’ll give it a go and share what happens.��

    0.433? My guess is there’ll be so little bearing surface between ball and barrel, accuracy will be low. Try two balls. Less powder, more chance of hitting something close

    I think you'll be fine. They will be soft enough they should obturate and fill the grooves and, they are a certain amount of fun. Speer and Lyman both used to list round ball loads in revolvers and I think some rifle cartridges. Lyman hasn't in many years and I don't know if Speer still does. I tried some .457 RB's, sized to .454 in a 45 Colt over a smokeless charge. Mine weren't very impressive. I did expect more at short ranges.
