    I just bought a supply of the Sierra 240gr JHC for my 44mag. I was planning on reloading with Winchester 231 powder. I am unable to find any info on how much powder to use. I have check the Hodgdon reloading data site with no luck, the Sierra 240gr is not listed. Anyone now where to get this info?
