    dragon68 - do you have a chronograph?
    I'd be really interested in speed of both of your loads.

    That 44 Mag load has got to be a king-sized boom.
    & that 357 load sounds interesting as well.

    357 Mag:
    158gr Action! SWC
    4.5gr Bullseye in 357 cases.

    357 Herrett (practice)
    158gr Action!
    20.0gr I-4198

    200gr Bullseye #1 SWC
    6.0gr Unique, or 3.7-4.8gr Bullseye, or 5.7gr HP-38.

    I had an old jug of Green Dot, and no real matching data, so I started out safe with it based on the lead data I had. Please note, the following data exceeds the max target load listed for LSW in an old Alliant Reloaders Guide.

    200gr IDP#4-XD
    5.0gr Green Dot
    WLP primer

    Avg 715fps

    So based on that and the Lyman 49th, I wouldn't hesitate to push it up to 6.0 gr Green Dot. The recipe that appears closest to a match shows a max of 6.4gr, but I'd need to chronograph that all the way up to see what it's doing before I'd try to push based on data for a completely different bullet design.

    Hondo I do not have a chronograph yet(my next to do) lol. But yes they are a strong mag load for lead.I plan on using the 44 for pig hunting and the 357 is a taurus 669 with 6" barrel i bought new 20 years ago(at Wal mart lol) that i love to shoot.With that load i can nail a tennis ball at 50 yards almost every shot :).

    200 Gr LSWC (More Bullets IDPA 1):

    W231 - 5.6 Gr makes 870 FPS average

    WST - 4.5 Gr no velocity data yet, but very clean and soft shooter.

    MBC 125gr SWC over 3.9gr HP-38. Accurate and soft shooting.

    MBC Cowboy #4
    200gn RNFP
    CCI 300
    5.0gn HP38
    1.195 OAL

    MBC IDP #6

    MBC 125 grain "smallball" LRN (mine are sized .358" for my .357 bore 9mms)
    3.7gr Red Dot
    CCI 500
    1.09" OAL
    Accurate and reliable in SIG P226 and Beretta 92FS

    .40 S&W
    MBC IDP #5 180 grain TCFP (also works with IDP #7 140 gr TCFP)
    4.0 grains Red Dot
    1.125" OAL
    CCI 500
    Works fine, accurate, light recoil. I don't have a chrony but the the 140 grain likely won't make major if that matters

    .45 ACP
    230 "Softball!" RN
    4.0 or 4.4gr Red Dot, or 5.6 or 6.0 grains Herco (all are accurate, herco 6.0 is most accurate for me)
    1.24" OAL
    CCI 300
    excellent plinker/target/action load. (The 4.0 load may not cycle a Glock 30 reliably one handed)

    9mm Subsonics

    I haven't seen this one listed yet and it's my favorite.

    147gr Subsonic
    4.8 gr or .34 disk setting HS-6
    Sm pistol primer

    Accurate and very mild shooting in any of my 9mm pistols. Brass lands in a pile a few feet from me.

    Doesn't anybody shoot rifle here ?
    How about some nods for the whitetail 135 & 165 for 30-30 ? Would like to see what others are shooting....
