.44 mag 300 grain lead light load?

Anybody know a good light load for a 300 grain lead bullet?
The ones I bought were bullet meister (No GC), and they look ok.
I'm trying 10.5 grains blue dot + CCI 350 tomorrow.
I use 11.5 blue dot for 45 colt with 300 grain bullets, and am guessing. I have many books, and looked online, but nothing was exactly the load I'm looking for.
I like blue dot, and H110.
Blue dot for light loads, H110 for full-power ones.
I just got 500 cases from starline, and just gotta start loading .44
At 20+ dollars a box for 240's, and up from there, can you blame me?

6.0g Universal Clays, heavy crimp using REDDING Profile Crimp die.

Good for IPSC, too.
