I use Unique, 2400, and H110.

You can load from mild (unique) to wild (H110).

Take care

There are a lot of good answers here.

Too bad Stilly could not weigh in. He has so many .44mag/sp loads by now I am sure he could have given you an earful of advice, but it would have also mirrored most of what everyone else is saying.

One thing that might be good to note though is that if you cast your own bullets for the DE then cast around 200gr for a slightly softer yet higher velocity round. Saves lead too.

If you buy bullets, consider 200gr for range and 240 for shooting cans and bottles and stuff. And yes, the H-110 is still king of the hill.

Enforcer and Lilgun as well as AA#9 and 2400 are decent as well.

My .44 Magnum load for 240 grain JHP (Hornady XTP) or Plated RNFP (Extreme 240Grain Heavy Plate) is 24.0 grains for Winchester 296 (same powder as H-110). I seat the JHP at a COL of 1.610" and the RNFP at 1.60".

For .44 Special I use 9.3 grain of HS-6 with a 200 grain LRNFP seated at 1.45" COL.

Everything loaded with Lee dies on a Lee Breech Lock Challenger press. Lee Factory crimp die set up for a medium crimp.

Uncrimped loads...
