When I lived in Montana, 25 years, I carried factory loads in the back country. Usually. 300g Cast Cores as my revolvers shot them so well. I still have several boxes of them. Now I am old and gimped up so here in TN there is no need to beat myself up. I load Rim Rock 240s and 250s with 7.5g Unique. I have a S&W 329pd and my old SBH 5.5" and enjoy shooting them both. If I had an opportunity to go back, I would just carry the SBH in my truck or Ranger. The 329pd is too lite for many heavy loads at a time. My Uberti El Patron 45 Colt 1873 clone is rated for heavy loads but has the original sized stocks and is not as comfortable to shoot heavies as my SBH with the plow share grip frame.
