New SW 629 Classic

Post by Gregh181 » Sun Oct 15, 2017 11:46 pm

Got a new Smith and Wesson 629 Classic w 6.5 inch barrel. Gun used by Dirty Harry in the movies. I have some really good hollowpoints to go w it and some Grizzly rounds as well which will pretty much go through anything.

Smiths are some nice looking and shooting revolvers. Probably flame me, but I wouldn't shoot very many hot loads through one. Save the hot loads for a Ruger.

Not at all I’ve read similar opinions as well. I wonder why SW can’t make them to handle it?

I mostly use 44 special in mine. Reserve the mag loads for special occasions.

Don't get me wrong, you can certainly shoot lots of 44 mag in it. The problem is with the really hot loads. One of the brands even says to only shoot in Ruger. I think the cylinder in the Ruger is a smige longer than the Smiths and the Super Red Hawk is also heavier and a real tank. Whereas the Smith is a well timed work of art.
