Re: Need input on S&W performance center 629
Not sure what you need. I can tell you I shot my last three deer with a S&W 629 DX with a 6 1/2 bbl with a Leupold 2 1/2 X 8 handgun scope. The gun shoots 2 to 3 inch groups all day long. I have also hunted with the Ruger Redhawk and Super Redhawk. They all shot within 2 to 3 inches (100 yd groups) but I always use a higher power scope.IE(Leupold 2 1/2X8) I tried the dot scopes. At 100 yards, a 2 minute dot scope covered too much space at 100 yards for my liking. The last buck I shot was with a S&W Preformance Center 44 mag with a 7 1/2 bbl mounted with a Leupold 2 1/2X 8 handgun scope. In all cases, the guns listed above, shot within 3 inches at 100 yards. Just to add to the mix, I used a Freedom Arms model 83 , 44 mag several years ago to hunt deer. It also shot 2 to 3 inch groups at 100 yards with the same Leupold scope as described above. All groups were shot off of a bench. I hope this helps. Doc in Pa.
