.44 Mag 200gr Hp-xtp 296 Load

I'm looking for a load range for the .44 Mag. using 200gr. Hornady Hp-xtp bullets and Win 296 powder. I understand that 296 and H110 are made at the same factory. My "One load" load book shows H 110 from 25.8gr-28.7gr. Any suggestions?

I use 28 gr of 296 and it is HOT. I also fire it out of an early Dan Wesson that is a heavy sturdy revolver.

Start low and work up slow.
W296 and H110 can act different.

Okay guys, thanks for the the replies. I'll start low and won't go over 28 grains.
