Does anyone have any once fired 44 mag brass, preferably the same headstamp.

Thanks
Mike

I have sold all but one of my 44 mags, I will look later this afternoon to see what brass I have as I did not get rid of any
Pistol brass is not as important to me as rifle brass. Most of my brass will be mixed but prolly can find a few hundred new or once fired all same mfg

.44 mag once fired is tough to find. My suggestion would just be to buy some new Starline Brass. It's good stuff; this what I did for .357 mag as I found that difficult to locate also.
Yeah , that's my next step.
Thanks

I bought Starline for the 44 in my avatar because I couldn't find anything else. Great stuff though and will last essentially forever. It's usually cheapest to buy directly from their website unless you can find a sale.

One of the really nice things about revolvers is that you're not chasing your expensive brass all over the floor!

I actually went the other way. When I got my 629, I bought 500 rounds of Starline 44 Mag brass. I use that brass for both my 44 Special and 44 Mag loads.

If you do this, keep in mind that you'll need to bump up your 44 Special load a smidgen due to the increased case capacity of the 44 Mag cartridge.

True, you could also try a different powder like Trail Boss which is great for calming down some of those big boys.;)
