Hey PJ? Did you ever chrony the 445. I have a 10" 444 marlin, when loaded properly, will leave creases in your forehead if you don't parry the recoil! Factory Remington 265's bend the elbow and stand the gun straight up in the air. I love my 'Hand-cannon', I just never chrony'd it and was curious. I took a white-tail doe with it. The deer was gut-shot by a friend of mine's '06 and I tracked her down in the snow. She left me get to within about 15 yards when she jumped up and started to run. I shot on the leap, she died on the down step. My aim was about 1" from being a perfect 'Texas heart shot'. Being in forensic pathology, tracking the bullet channel was easy-it went right up her spine, out her extended neck about 2" posterior to her right ear. Needless to say, she died instantly and there was no bullet recovery. Some Hunter's don't realize the penetration capability of the .44 slugs. The damage to the spinal column was horrendous. For a slug to go thru that much tissue AND bone and still exit, it incredible.

Ya,you got to love the 44cal's.I chronoed the 445 with H4227 and the 240gr bullet was doing 1689fps.I'm sure the use of H110 should put me right around 1800+ :shock:

Your making me drool over here. I can't wait to get my barrel and have the opportunity to crack myself in the forehead or break my wrist. :grin:

What scope did you mount on the gun? I have a 2X Leupold waiting here for mine.

Did you have a muzzle break installed on yours?

According to my Contender reloading manual Win 680 will give you 100-200 more fps. That's if you can find it.

Re: PJ

Dave,I have a 2.5x7 T/C scope on top with a T'SOB mount.The 12" barrel has NO muzzel brake.I don't think I would want a brake on it,it's loud as is.
