I am itching to get a longer bbl S&W 44Mag hunting gun. It will be going through a steady diet of hard hitting reloaded magnum cartridges, most probably 250gr bullets flying above the sound barrier.
My current short list is the following:
- S&W 629 Hunter 7.5" (no stock available anyway that I care to search)
- 629PC 8.375" (no stock either)
- 629 Talo Distributor Deluxe Special (in stock)
- Model 29 Classic 6.5" (no stock)
I used to hear about people buying the DX version which are supposedly more accurate but looks like S&W has dropped it.
What are your thoughts?
