I'm looking for bullets that will work well seated waaaaay out in a .44 Magnum. My Redhawk's chambers are very long and I would like to have something that doesn't float so long until it contacts rifling.
Preferably, something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I believe Hornady 300 grain XTP's have two cannelures. Seated to the rear cannelure, they are about as long as you're going to get unless you go with a custom hard cast bullet. They shot well out of my super redhawk with a heavy charge of AA#9 and were about $15.00/100 from the local shop.

Dry creek has a number of long ( heavy) bullets that come pretty close to filling up a RH cylinder. These are from an SSK mold but my gun likes his 313 grain gascheck even better.
Prices are very reasonable considering the premium quality of the bullets.

Try PENN bullets the Cowboy action shooters like the .44 hardcast he makes and they are much less than the drycreek, and probably just as good. I have yet to see a better .45ACP cast bullet than his(very consistent weight and quality)
