I was thinking about experimenting with loads for personal defense in griz country. I carry a S&W 629 Mountain Gun in 44 Mag. Looking for deep penetrating hard cast bullets. My experience has been that this gun (and my hand) like the 240 Grain bullets best. I have tried some jacketed 300 grains but can't group them nearly as well. I know some of you are going to try and tell me I need something bigger, but I'm not interested in hiking with anything any heavier. I'm practiced with this weapon and like it a lot.
Any thoughts on who makes the best hard casts?
