Think it was made for cowboy action shooting. Hornady did not have a listing for 44 special or 44 mag you may be able to find a recipe if you search around a bit. Randy

Try starting here. Agree then click on the caliber you want data for.

RT58, Thanks good data although not the weight bullet I am looking to load but I have loaded some at close to those weights. We will see how it goes maybe tomorrow. Craig

This may be an appropriate place to mention that the
AR15 and likely most gas operated firearms are cycled
according to dwell time which is the distance from the
gas port to the muzzle.

There must be enough pressure between the gas port and
the muzzle in order to cycle the action properly.
Changing the powder or powder charge weight will vary
the peak pressure, the pressure curve and also the
remaining pressure available to cycle the action
without causing the cycle to be too violent.

Hodgdon recommends H4895 as the powder to use for
reduced loads. Their formula is down to 60% of a full
power load for cartridges that use H4895 as a regular

I think I'd look into using H4895.
