I just took a few boxes of Speer Blazer Gold Dot (200 gr.) ammo, pulled them down and loaded their powder and bullets directly into new Federal brass cases with Federal primers. It is a VERY good load. The powder used "looks" like 296 but of course we really have no idea what they used. It is a fairly light charge of powder. Unique should get you very close to the factory velocity. If you get the 200 gr. Gold Dot moving about 830 fps. it WILL expand. Push it up to 1000 fps. or more and it will start to come apart. I run almost all of my .44 Spl. loads at about 900 fps.
