Sample text

I tried a few groups with 9 grains of Unique and both #429506 and #429507–and experienced significant leading and horrible accuracy. Too, there were spotty patches of the strange fouling. The residue and tiny particles of lead came out of the chamber with the bore brush. Cartridges showing proper seating depth (l to r) : 38 Special, 357 Magnum (not tested), 44 Special and 44 Magnum. An original sack of Lakeville Arms 44-caliber zinc washers, and an original mould in box. I spent a couple afternoons at the range shooting various Harvey-published 44 Magnum loads, and recording the worst groups I've ever been forced to look at.

As I make it a practice to use magnum primers for all extruded powders slower than IMR-4320 and Reloder-15 and any globular propellants, I capped these loads with the CCI-250. I'm certain that results would have been pretty much the same with any magnum primer. I once ran a series of tests comparing magnum brisance primers with non-magnum caps and a case full of IMR-4350 and found the groups with the magnum primers to be more uniform, at least in cases of this capacity. However, you may find just the opposite.

Some printed on an adjacent target. The bore leaded noticeably with 21 grains of 2400, a grain below Harvey's maximum with the 220-grain bullet. The lead, in contrast to the zinc, was somewhat darker and non-reflective. Two of five shots hit the target. Harvey wrote that it was within the rules to use Ipco wads. For the 44 Magnum, I selected the pink soft gas check wads (the modern Ipco counterpart) from CF Ventures (located, coincidentally, at 509 Harvey Drive, Bloomington, IN 47403). I went home, cleaned the gun and loaded twenty rounds with the same charge.
