HEY ALL...seems like this bullet is a winner...sure has the accuracy potential...i had to use the 40 meter range at my club as it was very crowded yesterday...
first 2-3 shots were about 1 1/2 inch low..cranked it up 2 clicks and the target shows 10 shots with the listed load...yes...this is from a 2 hand hold rest..
The load is as follows...S&W M29 1968 vintage #S247XXX 6 1/2" BRIGHT BLUE
starline news brass...cci 300...10.7gr CFE PISTOL...bullets sized to .432"...
Labradar Chrono
#1 1276 H1276
#2 1238 L1238
#3 1249 ES 38
#4 1239 SD 15
#5 1252 AVG 1251

AVG is right where i was looking for..maybe not the most powerful 44 mag load but no slouch by any means...plenty of blast and recoil....

Shoots as good as it looks, and it's a very good looking bullet. Very nice.

Elmer never designed a 224 grain .44 bullet . Looks like it shoots regardless of whos bullet it is.

Congrats! An acceptable group! 😉 I don’t think that you can improve on that very much! 😁 memtb

nice shooting tex!


Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.

When your ship comes in. ... make sure you are willing to unload it.

PAYPAL, sucks and I will never use them again. I recommend you do the same.
