Better as in 200 grains @ 1000 fps vs 246 @ 750.
Or explore the .44 Special "Skeeter" load for a 250 grain bullet at around 950 fps from...if memory serves me...a 4 inch barrel. I clocked a 200 grain cast, gas checked SWC a bit over a thousand from my 4.75 inch Cimarron Model P with a half grain under Skeeter's maximum.
Oh! Almost forgot. SKeet's pet load was a 250-grain Keith and 7.5 grains of Unique. YMMV
