The other day I purchased some .44mag 300g. TCFP Sillouette bullets from Missouri Bullet Company. My problem is I can't seem to find any specific reload recipes for it. I have a lot of reload books but nothing with this type of bullet. Does anyone have reload data I can use for it. I have 2400, H110, AA9, AA7, Blue Dot, and Unique powders. Thanks for any info you might have.

What kind of gun do you have?
A lot depends on that, and whether it is limited to standard pressure like a S&W Model 29, Ruger only loads like a Blackhawk, or +P+ like a Redhawk?

Other standard pressure loads?
REDUCE ALL MAX LOADS LISTED HERE by 10% for starting loads.
I am Not responsible for their use in your gun:
Exact bullet & seating depth unknown.
AA# 9 - 18.5 = 1,320
AA #7 - 15.0 = 1,247
AA #5 - 11.6 = 1,140
2400 - 13.5 = 1,150
Blue Dot - 10.7 = 1,110
Herco - 8.0 = 1,005
Unique - 7.2 = 965

I've attached a page from the 1996 Alliant Manual for your reference. I'd be thinking about 2400 and that 310g LSWC they list and seeing if you could cross reference from somewhere else for that weight range bullet.

In the April 2010 Handloader magazine is a column on +P 44 magnum loads.
They have listings for 310,320 and 340 grain Lead GC. They used a Ruger Redhawk for testing.

And they said that's all the loads were safe in.

Not for Super Blackhawks, not for S&W's, not for Tarui, or any other guns.

I chronoed some loads using Bear Creek 300gr lead bullets in my 6.5" S&W 629.

17.0gr of AA#9 averaged 1207 fps

18.0gr of AA#9 averaged 1253 fps

Thanks for the info guys. I really appreciate it. Oh, BTW the gun is a Taurus Raging Bull.

Did you check the manual? Taurus used to recommend a maximum of 240 gr in their 44 revolvers.
Hodgon also has some loads for 300 gr and up.
