Georgia Arms loads the Speer #4427 200gr Gold Dot HP .44 Special bullet in new Starline brass for ~$21/50. They are designed for short-barrel use - opening to .76"+ by 800 fps. They make 805+ fps from my 2.5" 296. The same bullet is used in the CCI Blazer ammo, which 'Academy Sports/Outdoors' chains sell for $16.86/50, making it the only .44 Special ammo you can find around Birmingham other than from a well-stocked gunstore. GA Arms may have cowboy ammo in .44 Special, too... their .45 Colt cowboy ammo, which I used thousands of before discovering the joys of reloading, was super. Nice folks, too.
