The Skeeter load of a 250 gr. at 1000 fps is just about perf

Skeeter's load of 7.5 grains of Unique with a 250 grain lead SWC is just about perfect. It will penetrate and provides enough power for just about anything, yet the pressure is low enough that it won't cause any undue strain on a modern N frame or single action revolver. Skeeter shot thousands of this load through his 44 Specials... Probably tens of thousands of rounds with no harm to the gun. I've shot thousands of rounds through my single actions with nary a hiccup.

To me it is THE perfect round. Enough power and penetration to take care of virtually any situation, yet not abusive to the shooter or the revolver.....
