Any suggestions for this combo?
Bullets are fairly soft and are minimally lubed.
for the Red Hawk or SRH plinking loads

"Lyman Says" 4.0 to 6.5 for a 44 special
"Hercules reloaders guide says" 9.7 for a 200 JHP, @ 1320 fps.
I would start lower and work up to it, thats a lotta red dot.

I have some old Hercules data and it's for a 200 JHP but it shows 8.5grns to 10.5grns RDot. If your bullet is soft, I'd be tempted to use Bullseye data.
