Good for you on the 44 Special. Have always thought it to be an under-appreciated cartridge. I have a lot of respect for any cartridge that leaves a big hole.

Pretty gun, the big bores are impressive from the front too. Not to be forgotten in a carry piece.

Nice one Jake! Ruger builds them beefy so you should be able to handle top end .44 Special loads!

Loaded some 200 gr Nosler over 15.6 IMR4227, Starline brass and WLP primers. We'll see how they do at the range.

I put this here because I didn't take any pics of the targets I used so not really a "range report". I did go this morning and shot my .357 Vaquero (very nicely), some 45 ACP with the P220 (so-so) and then shot 50 rounds with the Ruger 45 long colt. All targets were shot at 15 yards. I loaded it with 250 gr XTP over 20.6 gr IMR 4227. I could tell I was shooting something special after 50 rounds (I should have been wearing my shooting glove that I had in my bag, doh!). It has a lot more kick to it than the 45 ACP's I shot last weekend with it. I enjoyed my outing quite a bit. Anyway, now to tumble cases and reload!

I took it along with ammo but was getting a little tired and a lot more hungry! I'll get to it though. It sure has nice balance to it. Next Friday I think will be .22 day. I'll take out the Ruger MKII, my P229, and the Browning T-bolt for a bit of exercise.
