first time ever today shot a 44 mag.update

Went to the range today and my brothers freind just bought a taurus 44 mag 8 3/8" barrel not the raging bull model but the other one . was shooting this load

literally had no recoil at all dont know if this is a mild load or porting works that good . But im in love in 44 now forget a 357 . i seen someone about 2 hrs later show up with a 4" barrel 357 and they were having a hard time . i dont think that load was to accurate but i put 2 shots on a 2' tall cardboard box at 100 yards 18" apart . maybe a faster load would be more accurate . What other loads are similar to this . i figure heavy more powerful loads will kick similar to my dads 40 s&w . that thing walks and its a heavy *** hi-point :eek:.

Welcome to the world of the .44 Magnum, its all you really ever need out there, but the others just keep trying to be more popular... :D
Well, it's well known that any .44 Magnum can be loaded to .357 Mag level, but it doesn't happen the other way.

Personally, I am guilty of loading my .44M to less than train stopping levels. I shoot 240gr cast bullets to 1100fps. And when that isn't enough, I reach for the .35 Whelen.
