New 44mag hunting load

I wanted to try some new powders to work up a deer load for my Ruger deerstalker 44mag. I tried RL 7, VV N110, H110, and Lil'gun, and man did I find my pet load!

This is Winchester cases, Federal Mag Primers, 240gr Hornady XTPs, and 24.2gr of Lil'gun. My chrono showed them all within 5fps of 1980fps! These shots were taken as I sighted it in at 75 yards, thats why the groups are drifting towards the bullseye. As you can tell by my high tech target I'm not exactly a competition shooter, but this load is everything and more than I expected for this gun!

**This load is approaching maximum, always start with the minimum and work up**
