I could use some load data on 44-40 cal. pistol rounds, useing Winchester WSF Powder. I know 7.5 GN is too much, causing primer pocket damege through ignition hole. If anyone has any load data for this powder and caliber please let me know, Thanks - Rifleman 52

The load data is from the Hornady 4th edition, it also says these loads are for modern pistols.

Ominivision1, thanks for your reply, I am convinced now that my brass is just shot out, it has been reloaded many times. I will keep your load data on file, you have been very helpful to me, thanks.- Rifleman 52

STCM(SW) thanks for your comment,I also favor unique powder, I have shot up about 20 lbs. or so. It is very dependible and loads most pistols just fine.- Rifleman 52
