Powders for the 454 Casull

I just purchased a FA 7.5" 454 Casull. Please share with me your favorite powders for this caliber using 260 gr. and 300 gr. bullets.
Thanks

You're going to have to get familiar with H110. Its great dust for the 454 Casull.

Powders for the 454 Casull

Thanks guys for the replys,
I have loaded some 260's on top of H110. Got up to 35 grains of the stuff. going out at about 1700 fps. It looked like 36 grains was going to compressed and I got nervous. I'm going to inch my way up. Jus looking for one ragged hole at 50 yds.. Are Hornady's 240 HP/XTP mags too light?

WW296 (aka, H110) and Lil'Gun also work very well in 454 - Lil'Gun may be the best for the 300 gr. (31.5 grs. ~16-1700 pfs in 7.5" barreled guns).
