    Handloader Magazine #236

    My collection of Handloader Magazines only goes back to issue #240.

    I would like a copy of Brian Pearce's article on the .44 Special in the #236 issue of the Handloader.

    If anyone can offer me a copy I would be happy to pay for copying and mail. PM me for my Email address. Better yet, maybe an Email copy and send it direct to my Email (a PM will get my Email address)

    To all that replied, both here and in Private Messages. I have a copy coming, so that should be all that is needed.

    I want to thank all of you for your near instant response.

    All the best to you and yours,

    Thanks for the copy of that excellent 44 Special article! Somehow, I missed that article years ago. Some interesting points in the article:
    1. 30 inches of penetration in a mountain lion with a frontal chest shot.
    2. Complete pass through a black bear, rear back through chest, breaking spine etc.
    3. A 5 fps Extreme Velocity Spread(EVS) for the Skeeter load of 7.5 grs Unique behind a Keith 250 gr. Lyman 429421.
    4. A two(2) shot kill, through the lungs, of an elk at 100 yds.

    It's hard not to like the 250 gr. Lyman 429421 in a 44 Special at 950 fps or in a 44 Magnum at 1350 fps. That cutting shoulder, on the 429421, definitely helps its incredible straight penetration and bone crunching. Years ago, I did some penetration testing in a frozen sand bank with a 44 Magnum & Keith 429421s. Using a sharpened stick I attempted to dig out the bullets; after about 3-4 feet of stick-digging in the frozen sand-bank I gave up with no recovered Keith 429421s. I was very impressed with what Elmer Keith, the real deal, had developed. We are all very lucky that Elmer Keith, through extensive testing on all kinds of animals, gave us the 429421 design. It is indeed a remarkable bullet design that one can have confidence in it doing the job properly.

    Best regards,

    CJR
