My 4" S&W 629 does double duty as a nightstand gun and cold weather CCW and stays loaded with Remington factory .44 Magnum 240gr SJHP. Back when I had guns chambered for .44 Special only, they were loaded with either Winchester factory 200gr Silvertip or Federal factory 200gr LSWCHP, but if I ever get another .44 Spl-only revolver I'll probably go with Blazer 200gr Gold Dots, Cor-Bon 200gr DPX, or Hornady 165gr Critical Defense.
