I have had good results with 15.1gr of Blue Dot in my 50th aniversary Blackhawk, not a super hot load, but certainly in magnum territory. The slower powders didn't seem to perform well for me with the 210's.

Are we to assume this is a .41Mag???

I'm currently working up the 210 XTP with Alliant2400 in the same gun in 41 Mag. Alliant's website says with a CCI 300 primer you can go up to 19.0 grains, they lest a Speer Gold Dot bullet though. I've only shot my first round of handloads which were at 18.0 grains and a pretty good crimp. Average Velocity was around 1230 "ish" over my chronograph if I remember correctly. Recoil was pretty comfortable compared to factory made Double Tap ammo in the same weight...but velocity for that was around 1425. From what I've read those bullets open up slow, and penetrate well through bigger game than deer. Accuracy was 3" at 25 yards off bags... but I still haven't figured out a good steady grip off new bags so it might be me.
