I love mine. It's plenty accurate for a close range deer/hog rifle. I've shot a huge variety of reloads through mine. Everything but cast bullets. The .44 to me is one of the easier rounds to load for. I usually load my practice rounds up with Trailboss and hunt with 231. Fair warning though, after you shoot one regularly, you'll want to add a tube feed leveraction. It's a sickness I tell you!!!
