A major disappointment today from my prized big bad carry loading for my 44 snubbie. It would appear as though the 200grain speer gold dot load suffers from "low T"
From a 2" Taurus titanium five shots averaged a massively underwhelming 687 fps :what: which calculates out to a mere 200 ft lbs.
There's no way the gold dots would even attempt to expand at these velocities, and not all of this problem can be blamed on a short bbl. Cases ejected covered in soot an obvious underpressure sign. Even my 200 cast TRAIL BOSS practice load had more spunk averaging 700 fps.
So here I am looking for a sufficiently powerful carry loading before I resort to handloads possibly with full wadcutters. What other good SD loads are there to look into that have VERIFICATION of the velocities achieved ?
