1 lb how many .44mag loads?

I know it depends on the Powder and how hot is the load, but I’m just wondering; for how many loads in general I can expect 1 lb of powder to last. (min-max) Please name the powder as well.

Powders I'm thinking of using H110, Win296, HP36, Universal

btw what is the most economical (but good) powder for .44mag
