heavy loads

  1. Heavy load in Model 66

    Ammo Forum
    I was wondering what the heaviest load I can safely shoot out of my 66-1 with 4" barrel. For example would Federal's 180 hardcast loads work. I also want to preface that I dont plan on shooting heavy loads on a regular basis, but more of a just in case a bear or mountain lion wants to eat me...
