I'm looking for a good load in .44 special using Titegroup and 180jhp's. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

Start at 4.9g. Work up in .1g increments only. STOP by 5.5g.

Suggest finishing using Redding Profile Crimp die.

Thanks Weshoot2. I've been real happy with Titegroup but the load data has been hard to come by.

I read some of your other posts regarding the Redding die and bought one to try. Very nice indeed. I have to be careful not to flare the case too much (using Lyman M die) or it doesn't want to go into the Redding crimp die. Other than that, I'm a very satisfied customer.

Thanks again.
