.44 Caliber 240 Gr. SWC - Sized to .430 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
A hard hitting .44 in the popular Keith design.
100 Count Sample Pack
I bought these to load a .44 Special load that replicates the Skeeter Skelton load, 240 grain cast SWC over 7.5 grains of Unique. While I haven't had the opportunity to shoot these yet, they are very easy to load. I have been loading 190 grain cast LHP from another manufacturer and was concerned about having to reset my bullet seating die and crimp die. These bullets are exactly the same dimension as the 190 grain bullet, just no hollowpoint, so I didn't have to change a thing. The bullets loaded easily, no issue with the thickness of the coating compared to a standard lubed cast bullet. I will be ordering more of these; I haven't decided whether to go with a standard size order or stick with the 100 round sample packs. Right now it doesn't matter as I'm out of empty cases.

I have been working on a .44 Special load and have tried a number of projectiles form diffrent manufacturers useing Alliant 2400 with mix results. The 240 gr SWC from Bayou Bullets and the 2400 has produced a load that is a joy to shoot. Has to be the bullets! Thanks. Paul Badeaux on 25th Apr 2018
I loaded these up around 950 fps to shoot out of my Taurus Tracker. Clean and accurate. I tried same load in my 12" Encore, getting 1125 fps. Then shot a one hole group at 40 yards. Roger Smith on 27th Mar 2018
Ordered a sample pack of these mainly to punch paper and practice free hand shooting with a ruger redhawk 7.5 inch barrel. Used unique powder and these bullets shot absolutely awesome. Will be ordering 500 more very soon. Customer service is outstanding. They shipped lightening fast. I had a question on them and asked through the contact us section and got a very prompt answer. I foresee using lots of these bullets in the future. Christian Margeson on 14th Jan 2018
Ordered the 240 gr SWC for a new Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter. Loaded with IMR-4227, H110 and W296. Didn't seem to matter. The gun likes them all. At 1050-1100 fps there was absolutely no leading. At 50 yds from the bench I was holding 1.500" to 2.000" groups scoped. Will be using this gun for deer this fall here in CNY. billybee1 on 17th Aug 2017
Wasn't sure how these would work so I only ordered a small pack to test. I worked up two sets of test loads. Using 2400 powder, I got 1425fps with max charge from my 10" Ruger Super Blackhawk and accuracy appears to be good. The loads I worked up with BE86 powder were about 175fps slower but also seemed accurate, so these will be good reduced recoil plinking loads. I did not shoot many rounds yet, but did not notice any leading or fouling in the barrel. I need to load up more and test a little further, which is the only reason I did not give 5 stars.

Shot out of a new Ruger Super Blackhawk. Sighted scope in at 25 yards then moved out to 50 yards. Using Bayou Bullet 240 gr. SWC the gun was amazingly accurate. .875 six shot group was the best. 10 six shot groups averaged 1.125. Used three different powders. Didn't matter what the heck was pushing these bullets down the barrel they just went to the bulls eye. I've been shooting a .44 Mag for quite some years now but not like this. I'll be buying and shooting more of these. The bullets and shipping are both great. Nice to have a company like this in our shooting world. Thanks to all involved. BillyBee1 on 19th Apr 2017
They shot clean and accurate with 8.5 and 10 grains of unique. Unknown on 15th Feb 2017
first time loading any kind of lead bullets or 44 magnum. easy bullet seating, and first shooting my redhawk, at 10 yards, 1 1/2" groups with open sights. i'm sure once i get used to the gun it'll tighten up more. already have another 300 on my bench ready to load. pfisher on 1st Aug 2016
But I've tried others from Bayou. I like the coated bullet concept, eliminates any worries about leading of the bore. So far, I've tried .38 Super, a couple of 10mm (.40), and .45 ACP. I note that the coating seems to add about .001 to the diameter of the bullet. Keep this in mind if you have a tight chamber.
I've also bought .41 and have yet to try these out. Gary S. on 14th Jul 2016
