    Love the 44 special.

    One reason I don't change my 44 Special load is because it shoots to exact point of aim in my two Colt SAAs fixed sight guns and my adjustable sight Ruger Old Model Flattop 44 Mag revolver that someone shortened to 4 3/4" way back when---out of my Ruger #3 single shot 44 Mag rifle, it's close to 1100 FPS, but feels like a big 22!

    Ammo I shoot is not cheap (factory) but itís significantly less if I reload it.

    With a progressive station you can crank out a lot of your ammo for less. It will afford you more practice over the long run. Just something to consider.

    Itís what I have recommended to people who shoot any volume of ammo, especially for 4x caliber revolvers.

    You have a nice revolver. Iíve consider one of them. But I have a few already.

    If I ever decide to get the .44 gp100 back from it's current owner with a mind to get good with it I will get another 3 in gp100 in .22 for practice.

    As I think someone suggested.
