Yeah. Those are cowboy action level. I note that Alliant recommends 6.5 grains for the .44 mag and claims 905 feet per second from it with a 7.5" barrel, which is fast enough for swaged lead. But you've got to experiment a little with these things. Mine was actually .44 Special that was mostly for offhand practice in a .44 Special Charter Bulldog, so light recoil and not much punch was needed if I wanted to shoot all afternoon. I probably should have upped them a grain for a heavier revolver frame.
