Question about Mid-Range 44 Mag Handload

I am about to start handloading for an incoming S&W 629 with 4 inch barrel. I will be using Nosler 200 grain jhp bullets, with 44 mag cases, and I am looking to get the velocity somewhere around a mild 1100 fps.

Do any of you load 200 grain 44 mag bullets in that velocity range and, if so, do you have a favorite powder and recipe? I've seen sample loads published by Speer, using Unique, Universal, 231, Bullseye. I usually use Power Pistol powder in my other calibers and I like the way it meters and burns. I can't find a spot-on recipe for Power Pistol, so I will probably try another powder like one of the above.

Thanks for your help.
