Speaking of 44 special, I got my Matt's Bullets 250 gr. lead flat-point round nose hollowpoints a few days ago. I couldn't find an exact load for these, but I found a bullet that weighs 245 grains that is very close in profile to this one and I loaded it up. These are made of a softer lead, its not recommended for 44 magnum loadings but should mushroom nicely, from what they say on their website, and optimal loading is for 850 fps or so. The hollowpoint cavity is huge, the picture doesn't do it justice.
