.44 Mag Target load.

this is 7.5 Unique , Dry Creek 255 Ballisticast and magnum Cases. The same load does up over 900 in .44 special cases from a 6.5" Barrel. From the 4" Mountain gun Velocity was 863;energy 422 ft lbs; spread over five rounds was 72 fps. I shot it at 25 yards two handed double action ( shown) and single action at 50 yards. Mild recoil -pretty close to what I feel with the corbon 165 grain bullet at 1300

10.2 grains of UNIQUE is my standard "hot" load.
5.0 grains of UNIQUE is my PPC load and, it is accurate.

that unique is versitile iddn't? I use 10 grains with a variety of 240-250 grain bullets and they usually do somewhere in the 1100s regardless of barrel length.
the above one i checked out because somebody asked about magnum target loads. Can't find his post on any of the boards now.

Sub 3" groups at 50 yards! Nice smooth shooting practice round.
