Good to read som opinions and reports about the .44 S&W special. I’ve had a Rossi 720 for a few months I traded for at a LGS. I load 240 gr Lee mold cast bullets over 4.5 gr. Red- dot powder. I could do 5.5 gr s. The 4.5 is accurate and authoritative. I bought some cast 200 gr.cast SWC FN. I will use the same load. It was made in the 90s. Imported by Interarms. A heavier gun than the “bulldog”. I would like to hog hunt with this.
