    Back many years ago I used the old 2400 powder which was first developed to provide 2,400 FPS in a 22 Hornet in 1934.:scrutiny: The good news is modern powder like Win. 296 and H110 the same powder different labels is a very fine .44 Mag powder with hard lead or jacket. I like a powder that will over flow the case if double charged as well. Note if a hard lead bullet is leading it more likely a bullet too small for the forcing cone and bore.:)

    don't think he mentioned what dies he was using cause the biggest problem i had with 44 mag was getting the crimp right. crimp can be tricky some of the times when you start light and watch the chrono to see if the fps go up as you crimp more. that caused me to over crimp until i showed a picture of my crimp to the people on the high road and they steered me right. so when unsure ask and you will get the right info along with some funny razor comments until the moderator tells everyone to play nice:D

    Minimum charge of H110/W296 is 23 grains at about 1400 fps. 19 is too light and dangerous.

    HS-6 will give you around 1200 fps at pressures lower than H110.

    Can't go wrong with Unique.
    IMR 4227 is another 44 mag favorite.
