I'm using factory ammo right now, Hornady Leverevolution 225gr FTX. I'm getting some once fired brass stockpiled and will be loading my own soon.

You may already be aware of this, but I'm pretty sure that the brass from Hornady FTX bullet loads are trimmed to a shorter length than standard 44 magnum loads. This may only be a problem if you planning on shooting a different bullet.

Good shot with a nice set-up. I shot a 7 point two seasons ago with a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 and the satisfaction I got from using a handgun took me off rifles for good.
