Just a quick intro - Getting back into wheelguns after a long hiatus (only about 30 years!). Had a Super Blackhawk 44Mag in the '80s. Bought a GP-100 44 Special in April. Since I am also getting back into handloading, I am particularly interested in handload data for the 44. It appears from what I have been able to find, the GP-100 is very strong and can handle stronger loads than the standard 44Sp loads. I am interested in pursuing that information, as I also have a Henry Big Boy steel in 44 - would like to develop a load that will work in both (if that is possible).

Will you be working with 44SPL casings?

If yes, I load my 44SPL with 13.0 grains of Blue Dot for
the 240 grain bullets...

Thatís the plan. I also intend to use cast bullets.
