Skeeter Load for Snubbies
(This video was posted to YouTube on September 13, 2017)
The “Skeeter Load”, which is a 250 grain cast SWC loaded in a .44 Special case with 7.5 grains of Unique powder, is one of my favorite loads. This load, named for Skeeter Skelton, shoots from my 6 1/2″ S&W Model 29 at about 950 fps. I want to duplicate this velocity when shooting the same bullet from my S&W Model 629 TALO Deluxe, which has a 3″ barrel.
