What manufacturer does Corbon use for their "traditional" JHP loads? I am especially curious about the 165 gr. JHP in the .44 Special and .44 Mag? The Corbon website says they use Sierra, but Sierra does not list a .429 165 gr. JHP in their line-up. Also, the bullet loaded in the .44 Special does not look like a Sierra, more like a XTP. Any thoughts?

Corbon could be loading using a "special" bullet from Sierra made to Corbon's specifications.

The 165 gr .429 bullets we use in our 44 Spl and Magnum are from Sierra and they are a proprietary product (they make them special order for us).

Hi Michael!

An answer straight from the horse's mouth.

A quick question for you-

Why did you folks tone-down your .44 Special load? It used to be listed at 1150 fps and now shows only 1050 fps.

Thanks,

Hunter

We didn't change the load. We changed our test gun that we got our velocities from. We went from a 6" revolver to a more realistic 4" barreled revolver for a more accurate read. How many people use a 6" revolver for personal protection?
