I am casting some 310gr gas check flat nose bulltets in 44mag for bear loads, (Lee C430). I am casting them out of my own special #2+ alloy heat-treated and quenched for hardness (wheelweights plus tin and small addition of shot for the antimoy and arsenic to heat treat). I am having a hard time finding a good bear stomping load for this bullet.
I am settling on a load somewhere in the vicinity of 22-23gr (max) of H110 because I really like this powder. This is adopted from the 325gr LFN load from Hodgdon, and the Speer and Hornady jacketed bullets. I figure on settling somwhere below on account of accuracy and pressure, but I would like to know if anyone has loaded this specifically and found a preferable load. This is primarily for a S&W Mountain Gun 629-5 4".
Please let me know our thoughts.
