First .44 Magnum reloads...WOO-HOO!!!

I just reloaded my first batch of .44 Magnums and I gotta tell ya, I loooove it!
I used 240 grain Hornady XTP's under 23.0 grain of H-110 powder. Got a pretty good kick to them but got a 6-shot group of 3" at 50 feet from an unsupported standing position. What a fun gun (Ruger SRH)!!!

Thanks for all the information, advice, etc. You guys are great.

A hunting load should be able to get 1.5" or better at 25 yds.

Love the combination of CCI 350 primers, H110, and XTPs.
