    I have a problem finding handgun loads for my 44-40s using a 190gr LFN bullet. Most reloading data starts with a 200gr bullet.

    Does anyone have some specs for the 190gr, or should I just use the 200gr data?

    Use the 200 gr. bullet data and you'll be fine.

    Hope this helps.

    You can use the data for the 200gr bullet without problem. If it was the other way, you'd have to compensate.

    I've had great success with 6.4 grains of HP-38.

    I have used that load in handgun and levergun in cowboy action shooting when not shooting black powder.
