250 gr. Keith PB bullet from Leadheads fired in S&W 629 w/6.5" bbl. using CCI 300 primers and CBC/Magtech brass. Std. Deviation = 9 FPS (outstanding). Stout recoil. Hard hitting round. I could go with a heavier load but this appears to be the "sweet spot" for this gun and load combo.

Velocity average of 5 shots over Oehler 23C chronograph. This load was safe in my Ruger Blackhawk, 7.5-inch barrel. I have shot it in my Cimarron SAA Artillery replica (5.5-inch barrel) and it has been safe, with no excess pressure signs on primer or case (but is a stout load none the less and leaves lead in the barrel). This data is for information only. I worked it up carefully in the gun listed. Use it at your own risk.

Velocity average of 5 shots over Oehler 23C chronograph. Ruger Blackhawk, 4.75-inch barrel. Very pleasant to shoot, yet feels like a grownup load. This load was safe in my gun. The data is offered for information only - try it at your own risk.

This is a good and very accurate load in the S&W N frame 44 special. It never gives any trouble on extraction or signs of pressure. The regular primer gives better accuracy in my gun than magnums. I got one inch groups at 20 yards with this when my eyes were younger.

3.0 gr Titegroup with Sierra #8100 functions the gun perfectly, accurate at 25’. 3.2 gr Titegroup MAX is still very accurate, probably good defensive load.

Hogden did not discontinue h4227 powder. They have repackaged the powder under the imr4227 lable. Check to make sure that the powder was manufactured in Australia. This is identical to the old h4227. Excellent load in 7.5 inch barrel. It is the only powder on the market that will launch a 240 gr. bullet at 900 ft/sec and still be at the pressure limits of the 44 special. You can actually load this up about 1.5 grs higher in the 44 special if shooting from 629. Very accurate.
