I just tried to find it and was unable to.I have never seen or heard of it before and if the MV is not too much,could be an interesting round to shoot.

Those are 250gr Sierra silhouette bullets its loaded with. Really great bullets.

Sierra also makes a 220gr silh bullet it that same profile. These Sierras

aren't a true FMJ... They have an exposed lead soft point.. Actually a pretty

good hunting bullet on really large game

Tried them today at the range. Really accurate and almost same POI at 50yds as my usual Federal American Eagle 240grJHPs. You certainly know when they go off, lol. 5" 629 I will try them on a deer or hog if the chance arises.

Should be great for an emergency bear gun, with ample penetration. Ditto for Florida people plagued with pythons.Or alligators or crocodiles.

That is really nice and uniform performing ammo OP.

.44Mag is an inherently accurate round so most of the Premier branded stuff is going to do well in most Smith's; the luck of that is on your side!

I've had great accuracy with Federal Fusion 240grain rounds as well as Fiocchi and Prvi Partizan 240 grain ammo. And of course any of the medium-warm loads from Underwood and Buffalo Bore have been stellar. I'm expecting a delivery from Matts-Bullets of their 265 Grain, Gas Checked Keith's that once tailored to it's optimal load should be more accurate than almost any factory load.

I like Matt's Bullets. He helped me with an experiment shooting 135gr 44 bullets. His 250gr HP 44 is my favorite in 44Spl. It has a BIG hole,lol.

So there are some "Crazies" that shoot a full blown 44 Magnum in Matches........ ?? !!

What does that feel like, after the second box of ammo ??

100 rounds of hot 124gr 9mm gives me a workout.
