looking for the factory dw load data as i just picked up a .445 supermag.

was thinking of loading some 265gr fp's or some 300xtp hollow points or maybe some of the new hornady ftx .44 mag rounds.
likely would load these in 44 mag brass that was not trimmed like the hornady manual calls out for.
likely would use h110,lil gun or a1680 as i already have some around.

anyone have any dw load data,as i cant seem to google much up.so far i have the hornady manual data(not really much)and some off john taffins webpage.

thanks
pete

I think it is on the Dan Wesson forum.

Same happened to me when I got my 375sm so I just use data in the hornady #7 manual.

In my .445 experience, AA1680 (and W680) is far superior to H110 in that cartridge. More velocity AND no high pressure signs that H110 had. Haven't tried some of the newer powders.

AA-1680 is the preferred powder but several work well. Personally, I'd avoid H110. This should be enough to get you started....
