44mag Unique Powder Light Loads
I've been a fan of Unique for as long as I've been reloading. My typical hunting load with the .44mag (Taurus M44 and Ruger Super Redhawk) is 10.9gr of Unique pushing a 240 grain jacketed soft point. I've killed lots of deer and targets with this load.
I have a lighter trail gun coming down the pike, and would like to stick with Unique and the 240 gr JSP's, without breaking my wrist. Any suggestions on a nice plinking / anti-coyote round. 8.5 grains of Unique? Any reason not to go even lighter than that?
I want to avoid using Special cases, as I have a massive supply of the magnums from years of shooting.
I welcome any suggestions. Thanks.
