I recently bought a used Super Blackhawk from a guy and last night he stopped by and gave me 3 boxes of his reloads. I'm the kind of person that doesn't fire others loads in any gun I own unless I know them to be a competent loader and he assured me he was. So I took the reloads. 3 boxes of 50, one box had 48 empties in it, the only rounds ever fired through that gun. These loads were Speer lead SWC, 240 gr. the charge was around 1 grain under max of H110. I've never loaded any lead bullets but have always heard that loaded to higher velocities, which I'm guessing means around ~1100 fps in .44 mag, isn't good at all on the barrel. Anyone know of anything I should look for? or just shoot the gun and see how it does? Also, let's say that the gun is fine, would you fire the stout loads with a lead bullet?
