I've been using a S&W M396 for about 10 years - with stiff loads...250gr. hardcast @ 970fps.... Thinking about upgrading to M329. The only changes I would make are M500 grips, action job and magnaport. I think it would be a 44mag I be willing to wear in the woods...unlike my 629 Mountain Gun, that seems to pull my pants down and, so, gets left in the truck. (I can't abide shoulder holsters.)
Anybody here have experience with M329?
