I plan to switch from H110 to 2400 when my current can runs out. Reason is that I want to use the same powder for my .44 mag. hunting loads and my .30-30 and.30-06 target loads. The ultimate goal is to reduce the types of powder that I keep on hand.
I’m looking for a starting point for the.44 mag.
Looking thru the manuals that I have, the 1988 Hercules pamphlet lists 20.6 as maximum, the Lyman 3rd edition lists 19.4 to 23.4, and the Alliant web site lists 20.0. I also have an old magazine article by Elmer Keith where he recommends 22.0 grains.
The bullet I am using is the Lyman 429421, powder coated.
I will be shooting these in a Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter.
So my question is: For anyone loading .44 mag. close to maximum, with 429421 and 2400, what charge are you using?
