Here is one of my babies: S&W 500 Magnum. I often load it up with 700 grain hardcast bullets for "guest" shooters. All it takes is one shot, and it eliminates their wanting to shoot it again.

The 44 is my favorite caliber to reload too. With the Alaskan, you can't hurt it regardless what kind of load you make.

The Coonan comes with a lighter spring for shooting Specials. Some people say that it still doesn't cycle properly. I haven't had that problem. I use the magnum spring and load up my Specials with 20...

Thanks Yazul42,

The "new" Coonans are not picky at all as long as the ammo is really Magnum loads. I reload, so I make my ammo a little on the hot side. Even my (reloaded) 38 Specials cycle good.

It was TiteGroup. It's a good powder, but easy to double. I use H110 only for magnums and 2400 for Specials.(IE: 38/44) I've had good success with Unique but it seems to be hard to find around here.
