Sorta on target; I reloaded some .432" balls in my 44 Magnum. Weighed about 123 gr. I used a very light charge of Bullseye (I got the load out of my Speer #11). I rolled the balls in alox and seated them just below center and put a light roll crimp on them. Bullets were secure and were pretty accurate. Shot in my Ruger SBH. I was getting 2" groups at 25 feet. Didn't try them at any longer range.
All the charts I see say the 000 buck runs .36", but I would measure some to get a more accurate diameter, to the third digit, but a ball ..005"-.008" oversize would be easily swaged down...
I've learned how to stand on my own two knees...
