I mentioned in another post my son is buying my .44 mag and I knew where there was a 5 1/2 in .44 special flattop.It followed me home. Had some very light patina[rust] starting on the barrel and front sight which cleaned right off. Was the worst Ruger I have ever taken apart,who ever threaded those screw holes should be flogged. Polished, cleaned and tweaked everything that needed it and now have a clean smooth trigger. First loads were some cast 245 gr swc at 1000-1100, only 10 shots so far on a creek rock. It will do! Now need to make another holster.Would like to add a Super hammer and narrow the front sight a bit.

I've got the 4.62" version. It goes everywhere with me. The throats are all over the place, (.428-.430) but it's damn accurate. I usually feed it a 260 wfn in front of a good amount of 2400 or a 240 Keith and unique.

Shot the .44 special some today and it will soon get a set of Pachmayers,as I don't get along with wood grips at all. Had the 6 1/2 in .41 and my 4 5/8th .45 colt along too. With 17 gr of 2400 and a 245 gr swc in the 44, 17 gr of 2400 and a 210 gr Hp in the 41, and 20 gr of 2400 and a 250 gr hp in the .45 colt. The colt has the softest feeling recoil impulse of the 3 to me. Shot at 25 yds and all are keepers. Like them all but the .45 COLT will always be # 1 for me. Found a Super Black Hawk hammer for the .44 yesterday.Leather work comes next.
