    What weight bullet does your RCBS mould cast with your alloy? I've used H110 under cast 240 - 255 gr Keith type SWCs and the max load producing SAAMI MAPs is 23 - 25 gr. That's based on my own pressure testing with an Oehler M43 in a Contender...

    I size my 44 mags to .430-.431 depending on which boolit. For hunting I would use 18.5-19.5 gr of 2400. For all around use I use 8.5 gr of Unique.

    Drop back 1 grain if you are concerned. The Lyman data should be fine though. I have been using 19.5 gr of 2400 for years (decades) with that boolit for hunting, I got better accuracy with 2400 than any of the H110 loads I tried. 18.5 gives even...

    The alloy and lube you're using for your BP loads will work just fine with smokeless powder if velocities remain the same.

    I've heard of it but have never tried it. It does look promising. I'm going to be going to Sportsman's Warehouse tomorrow for some other stuff, I may have to see if they have any and try it in my Lyman 54 Deerstalker.

    No, 26-27 gr H4895 will be right at 100% load density. Velocity will be 1800-1900 fps.

    Lee's C312-155 sized at .312 shoot very well with no leading in my Russian SKS. It had a groove diameter of .311. I have shot other cast bullets sized .311 w/o any problems. I use GC'd (Hornady's) bullets and a good NRA 50/50 lube such as Lars...
