.44Spl. bullet size
Opinions needed: I'm going tomorrow to a reloading supply house I've never visited hoping to find some hard cast .44 bullets for my Ruger flattop, new model. I've had the gun for two years, but have not been able to hand load ammo that matches my accuracy demands. The best my gun will do is with factory DoubleTap jhp's, 200 grns. I want a heavier cast bullet, maybe 250 grains that will give me the accuracy of the old standby of 7.5 grains of Unique.
My question is, what size bullet should I buy? The LBT's from my .45Colt are 300 grains over 2400 and are absolutely amazing in accuracy, and I so want a load for the .44 that I can hunt with that has similar accuracy. Bullet diameter is my concern. Advice and suggestions greatly appreciated because I so love the Ruger flattop. Don't mind buying other propellants or primers, although I have many non-magnum large pistol primers and lots of Unique.
I would especially like to hear from .44 flattop owners. Velocity is not so nearly important to me as accuracy. I'm looking for 1.5 inches at 25 yards.
Thanks in advance. God bless.
