    For a light load try 7.5gr Unique over a MBC 240gr HiTek coated LSWC in a magnum case. It's hot enough for plinking--really a hot .44special load in a magnum case. Works quite well in a SBH.

    Thanks for this thread. Have a new 2.75" Model 69 that hasn't been shot yet. I've been looking for suitable non-magnum handloads.

    You know what...I didn't even notice that. I initially read it as a 4" 629, not 69.

    Yeah...I wouldn't want to run anything even close to 1000 fps through that for a beginner. I wouldn't want to run anything over 1200 fps for the sake of my own hands.

    It's a load for special brass, but those Missouri 240g SWC over 5g of Unique are really nice shooting. I run those through my 19oz Bulldog and they're *almost pleasant to shoot.

    You are right, the L frame is a medium frame, I got that wrong. Thanks for the straight info!
