.44

My .44 Mag is a bull barel configuration. And yes the chamber is longer than a normal .44. I can almost chamber a .445 in it. I don't think it affects the accuracy at all. My best group was at 50 yards with 225 grain Serria's - .310.

I load #6 shot in it but it is not very effective from my observations.

Won't work!

The Hotshot barrels have an insert in the end of the barrel. It is not a choke per say, but a section of reverse rifling that shreads the shot capsule. It must be removed to shoot the barel with normal bullets. If you don't remove it the results are interesting. Usually after one 2 foot group I remember that it is in. :grin:
