The only thing I've shot in mine is the 250gr Keith with 7.5 gr of Unique. Any more then that and it is hard on the web of my hand.

I will admit with the new grips it's much better.

In addition to the .44 I also own a stainless version in .45 Colt. For some reason the rubber grips on this gun don't hurt me.

The load for the .45 Colt is a Lyman 255 gr Keith style and 8.5 gr of Unique. I also own a 265 gr Ballisti Cast mold that makes an even better bullet. But the mold never cools off and I sell 100% of what I make with it.

One day I will get to try that 265 gr bullet.
