Hello,

I am looking for a good accurate load for Target/defense for my 629-4 3" Trail Boss 44 Mag.

I would like to start with a good coated 240gr SWC Coated bullet ( to prevent leading)

I have seen bullets by Falcon, BayouBullets, Acme, BadManbullets and SNS casting.

I was wondering if any of these brands are good?

I would like to load Starline 44Mag brass with a mid range accurate 44Mag load and powder that burns clean, Possibly Tightgroup, but I am open to suggestions.

I love the 3" Trail Boss but with Factory 44Mag loads it's a beast and not comfortable to shoot.

I have not reloaded in 40 years so any hint on best Carbide dies would also be great.

Thanks,

Rich

Hey Rich,

Swell looking 629!

I load a 240gr LSWC over 7.5gr Universal Clays. Gives 900fps from an 8-3/8" revolver.

Accurate, clean and pleasant to shoot.

Should work well with those Mag na Ports!

I do all my loading on DILLON and really like the DILLON DIES. Easy to take the seating & crimp dies apart for a good cleaning.

Hope this helps.

Later, Mark

Have not heard anything bad about any of those bullet makers. There is also Missouri Bullet Co and Summers Enterprises that make decent coated bullets
