Howdy boys. Modern N-frame and .44 special wonderments.

Jest,yes and no.

Considering the number of new .44 specials and those coming and going in the last 30 years or so, one would think that loading manual publishers would have a section for specific new revolvers. Heck, Speer has such data for .45-70, .45 Colt, .257 Roberts, etc. It's time for SAAMI to step up, and not make us rely solely on magazines and the internet, which offer wildly differing data. It ain't 1908, and the .44 special needs to come of age.

I shall check out the new Handloader issue. My revolver likes 2400 and a Keith SWC, to performance almost identical to Skeeter's load (which unfortunately gives me some leading).
