44 Magnum 200g LRN plinking load?
I'm hoping to load up some mild plinking and small game loads in 44 Magnum cases, using a 200 grain LRN Flat Point cast bullet and Unique powder I have on hand. I want to keep velocities between 850-950 FPS to avoid squibs and leading, and to try to keep the burn as clean as possible with Unique. My Speer manual doesn't carry any data for this bullet, and online research is also proving fruitless. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'll be firing these out of a 5-1/2" Ruger Redhawk.
I was thinking of using 8.0 grains of Unique as a starting point. What do you think? Thanks, everyone.
