Reduced Velocity .44 Magnum Loads

#1

Post by Crash » Tue Feb 11, 2020 7:12 pm

My Browning M92 in .44 Magnum will not feed .44 Special loads properly. However, the rifle is so light that, with the curved metal buttplate, it is very unpleasant to shoot more than about 10 full-power magnum loads. Does anybody know of a source for reduced velocity .44 Magnum loads? I would go with Cowboy Action loads, but I don't like using lead-bulleted loads as they leave a lot of lead in the barrel. I would be interested in 240 grain JHP loads at about 950 FPS. And, I do not handload.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I’m not aware of any reduced recoil loads, although there may be some; but have you considered handloading for it?
