I have done a lot of reloads for .44 mag in the past year.

Have used Blue Dot, Unique, and 2400 all with success. But my all time favorite now is Winchester 296. I love this stuff.

I love the accuracy, and the velocity that I get out of it. But the best thing about it I think is the way it flows like water. It is so fine, almost like table-salt. When metering out in the powder drop, the fine texture of it makes it so it never "cuts" like the rod powders like all those IMR powders or even the flake powders like the Unique.

My pet load now for my 5.5" Redhawk is a 305 gr HC/GC over 21 grains of
W-296. Incredible accuracy and great penetration.
