Re: 44 mag lead loads Bullet Dia
You need to slug the barrel and chamber throats of your gun for a good answer. Accuracy and no leading is best when the lead bullet is about .002" larger than the bore. I have 4 .44 magnums and the bbl. diameters run from .4295" (Ruger Super Blackhawk) to .432" (Puma M92). Consiquently, I use bullets of .431" (Ruger) and .433" (Puma). I've used the .433" bullets in my Ruger with no ill effects, I just prefer to save them for my Puma. Cast bullet manufacturers (the good ones at least) size their .44 caliber bullets at .429", .430", .431", and .432". I have a Ranchdog mold that gives me .433" bullets of WW alloy for shooting in my overbore Puma.
The bullet size you mention will work fine in your gun.
