I have a new "Classic Series" Model-29 S&W .44 Magnum with a 6.5" barrel... Most of my reloads are mild since I mostly shoot in steel plate matches, but I did have a little 2400 left, so I loaded up 20 rounds with it.... Per my Speer #13 manual, with a 200Gr. JHP they call for a minimum of 22.0Grs. to a maximum of 24.0Grs. I loaded them with 23.5Grs., and it came close to filling the brass, leaving just enough room to press the bullets in.... I weighed the charge a couple of times to make absolutely sure they came out at 23.5Grs. and it's been a long time since I loaded .44 Mag's with 2400.... I'm just a little concerned since I don't want to damage a brand new, hard to find revolver with a hot load. Looking for opinions from some seasoned .44 Mag reloaders as to whether or not this is in fact a safe load to shoot. I know it'll kick like a mule, and I don't shoot full house loads too often, I just don't want to damage the gun......????
