.44 Mag Reloading Woes...
I've just got my reloading equipment set up on my bench and have been having a great time with it. I've started by loading the old traditional 250 gr. Keith style bullet from Leadheads over 20 gr. of 2400 using WLP primers using a heavy crimp from a Lee Factory Crimp Die. This is a couple of grains under Keith's later .44 mag loads of 22 grains of 2400 but I thought I'd work up. The current load of 20 grains of 2400 out of my 6" 629 is a bit disappointing for me. Its a bit inconsistent. I can hit a deer with it as it is but 2" groups at 25 yards is not at all satisfactory from a gun that can shoot .5" groups at the same distance using Winchester Supreme cartridges.
Any suggestions for this reloading newbie?
