Georgia Arms
« on: August 10, 2018, 05:23:21 PM »

Been ordering ammo from Georgia Arms (georgia-arms.com) for the past ten years or so.  Always very clean and never had a problem with any of their loads.  Just ordered 250 rds of .44 magnum 240 grain SWCs and another 250 rounds of .41 magnum 210 SWCs for $25/50 rds.  Ammo arrived in less than a week with no problems; delivered to the door by FEDEX.  Took 50 rds or each to the range to check in my 4" 629 and my model 58 Smiths.  Was impressed with the quality and performance of both loads.  The .44 SWCs are rated at 1000 fps.  In my 4" S&W they cleared the chrono between 980 and 992 fps.  The .41 magnum rounds are rated at 800 fps, over the chrono they ran between 880-902 fps; a little warmer than expected, but still easy handling.  Can't find either load locally for under $50/box, looks like I'll be ordering another 1K of each load, replacing it as I shoot.

Just prior to the move I was loading some .44 Mag ammo using Hornady 240 gr XTP's. Once I get my reloading gear unpacked I'll have to get some more .44 Mag brass for the Marlin.
