Everybody flinches on a gun that is "too big."

I flinch with my 44 rem mag because with my 300 grain loads every shot is going to hurt me.

Whereas with my 45 ACP I am happy as a clam.

Sounds like you may want to get something less powerful,

and sell the .44. It looks like you're losing the fun factor there.

Dangerous game loads are hot for a reason - if your just punching paper, drop down to 44 special and have some fun.

I just love the large, crisp, round hole a .44 punches in paper.

The .45ACP seems to push through, and leave an uneven hole...

Breathing, trigger control and repetition.

I’m real new at this too. So far I’ve gotten my best results with my 9mm & .22LR by using my support hand to hold my trigger arm tightly at its WRIST, pulling my trigger arm ‘out’ toward the target. My trigger hand only holds the gun ‘straight’ and pulls the trigger. The weight of the gun and maybe some of my arm is on my support hand. I sort of ‘aim’ with my shoulder & stance. I also focus all my concentration on my sight picture, not on my trigger finger, so that when it does fire, it almost is a complete surprise. Yes, my thumb is over my wrist. Make sure it’s quite far back and away from the slide. I hit the small index cards at 20 or so feet about half the time this way with the 9MM, then I get tired and can't hit anything.

Those snap caps are great for training too. Mix them in with your brass and load your mags without looking. You'll be able to see when you are flinching. Even good shots will flinch on occasion.

"300 grain loads blah blah blah..."

That's nothin ! I sometime flinch or even suffer a broken arm when I fire my JDJ Handcannon in .50 BMG with my my personal custom loads of equal parts gunpowder and grenade explosive ! LOL

I'm finding a lot of personal satisfaction from getting

top-end ammo quality at WWB cost by loading my own.

I'm also starting to work up pet loads for my guns.

IMHO, reloading goes hand in hand with accuracy,

unless you're very wealthy, and can afford to constantly

buy and try top end ammo...
