    Hey guys I just got my new Marlin 1894 .44 mag rifle I bought some componets and I am wondering where to start.
    This is what I have
    XTP 240 gr
    Jacketed FP 240gr
    Lead FP 240 gr
    I have H110 poweder and CCI LPP

    I am wondering if there is a good starting load I could use for all of these?
    What would be a good OAL of the finished product?
    Crimp or No Crimp?

    If yolur 1894 is like mine it has an oversize bore and one of the few things it will shoot well is Hornady XTPs (size .430) and a hefty load of H110.

    Hornady data for that 240 XTP

    I just had that same question for the XTP and called up Hornady. Image is a scan they sent me from the rifle load data. They recommended the Winchester WLP primer. The Hodgdon online data ought to send you the right way too.

    I'll second the suggestion for the Hodgdon's data.

    Crimp. Especially in tube magazines like your Marlin. Get the best. Redding Profile Crimp die.
