    Can't find any data for 170gr bullets any one have a recipe will be shooting it out of a 6" blackhawk. I would like to use 2400 or win 231 as that is what I have on hand

    Lyman #49 lists 8 powders with a 170 Sierra JHP.

    They don't list W231.
    2400 is shown as
    17.5 Start = 1,279 @ 29,200 CUP
    19.5 MAX = 1,467 @ 36,400 CUP (Also shown as most accurate load)



    Hodgdon website shows 9 powders with a 170 Sierra JHP.

    HP38 (same as W231)
    8.8 Start = 1,326 @ 29,500 CUP
    9.8 MAX = 1,440 @ 38,300 CUP

    Here is data from the .41 mag "One Book" that shows Sierra and Winchester loads for 170gr JHP using your 2 powders.
