.44 Caliber 240 Gr. SWC - Sized to .430 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
A hard hitting .44 in the popular Keith design.
I loaded some of these 240 gr .430 " up with Longshot, I think 3-4" groups of 6 out of newer 5" bbl 629 classic at 50 yds consistently. If I can do this with open sights suspect they are capable of 1/2 this size or better. These are the best coated bullets I've found so far for 44 mag. There is some residue left in bbl after shooting 50 or so but not much and it can be removed easily in one or two passes with copper choreboy wrapped around an old brush. 4 stars instead of 5 because of residue but again, these are the best coated bullets for 44 mag I've found.
If shooting a Ruger check your throats, .431 sized seems to provide the best accuracy as all 44 mag Rugers I've owned, have oversized cylinder throats ~.431-.432. Excellent accuracy when sized to .431 in a recent Ruger Super Blackhawk hunter. I do not know exactly why throat lead/coated bullet must match throat size so closely for best accuracy, however, my theory is if throat does not match (non jacketed) bullet size gases leaking by base of bullet cause erosion on the rear of the bullet differently each time and this effects the bullet when it leaves the muzzle.

Bayou Bullets sized these to .432 to match the over-sized cylinder throats of my S&W 629. I emailed BB on Sunday regarding sizing options, and received a personal phone call response Monday morning. I'm getting excellent results with 8.7 grs of Unique Unknown on 21st May 2019
Bought the .44 cal 240 gr SWC in both .430 and .432. Loaded up some .44 Mag with 10.0 gr Unique, and .44 Special with 7.5 gr of Unique. Shot the magnums out of my 629, and my Flattop Blackhawk. Shot very well with no leading or fouling. The .432s will eventually be tested in my Win 94 Trapper.
I shot the Specials out of my Lipsey's Flattop .44 Special. Excellent accuracy and no leading. I'm buying more of that bullet very soon. Dave N. on 12th May 2019
Purchased a case of these during free shipping sale. Received order within days. This was a heavy box to ship and the box and contents arrived undamaged due to the good packaging job. Product shoot good and do not lead the barrel if you keep the velocity reasonable. Michael on 6th Feb 2019
Ordered at .432 for my rifle, and that's what they miked. Swaged some to .430 for my revolver, coating was undamaged. Test fired some of those, bore stayed clean. Good stuff. Bob Lombard on 6th Nov 2018
I bought these to load a .44 Special load that replicates the Skeeter Skelton load, 240 grain cast SWC over 7.5 grains of Unique. While I haven't had the opportunity to shoot these yet, they are very easy to load. I have been loading 190 grain cast LHP from another manufacturer and was concerned about having to reset my bullet seating die and crimp die. These bullets are exactly the same dimension as the 190 grain bullet, just no hollowpoint, so I didn't have to change a thing. The bullets loaded easily, no issue with the thickness of the coating compared to a standard lubed cast bullet. I will be ordering more of these; I haven't decided whether to go with a standard size order or stick with the 100 round sample packs. Right now it doesn't matter as I'm out of empty cases.

The bullets are superior and they were shipped in a very timely manner. Highly recommended. Steve on 6th Jun 2018
I have been working on a .44 Special load and have tried a number of projectiles form diffrent manufacturers useing Alliant 2400 with mix results. The 240 gr SWC from Bayou Bullets and the 2400 has produced a load that is a joy to shoot. Has to be the bullets! Thanks. Paul Badeaux on 25th Apr 2018
I have loaded many 240 gr lead and coated lead bullets from other manufactures. What I like about these is they only vary in weight at most a grain. I started with a 100 rnd sample pack, and now I just received my 1st box of 500. I'm now going to try out the 9mm sample pack that I also purchased, after checking them out closely, I'm sure I'll be ordering more.
Thanks for making such a great product! PD Garrison on 12th Apr 2018
