Default M460 Carry Velocities plus 44 Mag info.

Chrony your M460 Carry with reduced loads of 4227, #9, 2400 and TrailBoss (to the base of the bullet) lately?

If you will share that data with any bullet weight & style it will be greatly appreciated.

My Chrony has only been used for bows&arrows/air guns and I hope to get some serious range time after finishing the storm damage to the house.

Thanks!!!

I loaded and shot them safely but am curious as I will be loading to match 44Mag velocities with similar bullet weights/styles.
Lotsa data on our 629/4".
Also, what is the longest OAL that will work in the 629, bought new 4-5 years ago, as it's in Colorado?
I'll be loading for the 629 and a Winchester '94 which can load them long.

Those modified K22 Targets with a racquetball glove works best as the OEMs, even with some filing on the tips of the finger grooves, have my hand too low.
I do use a slightly thicker glove, that allows for trigger control, with normal loads.

Modern 629 cylinders are 1.700" long. Add .060" for the rim & the max. COAL" would be about 1.760"

That max. COAL" can only be obtained if the loaded bullet's diameter is smaller than the cylinder's throats or it has a long nose that's not full diameter. It's bullet dependent.
