Please allow me to clarify. I am asking for opinions on bullet diameter for the 280gr WFNGC(.429,.430,.431) I am not sure how to determine which would work best in my gun. Also any recommended loads for this bullet.
Thanks much!!!

Afternoon Curt -

You'll need to slug your barrel and cylinder throats to determine the optimum bullet diameter for you pistol.  Marshall has written an outstanding Technical Guide that covers this procedure in detail:

As for loading data, check out the loadswap.com interactive database.  There are currently 3 loads listed for the 280 grainer.  You can access loadswap from the icon menu (on the "left" of your screen).
