New to Hand Gun Reloading

This is my first post on this site,and I'm sure it is not going to be my last.
Great site'''''''.Hey,
I'm new to pistol reloading and looking for some good pointers.
I've reloaded rifles for years but I'm new to pistol reloading.
I was planning to reload some 44Mags.for my Super Red Hawk 7 1/2" barrel.
I have several different bullet types to reload.
I have some Rem.JHP'S 240 gr,Hornady 300 gr.HP/XTP'S, Speer TJM 240's and some bullets that I haven't seen before .
Magtech SJSP 240 gr.I got the Magtech from Cabela's. The Magtech will be used for plinking.
I plan to load all with Blue Dot powder using RCBS carbide die set.
I plan to load up a deer loads with the 300 gr Hornady's, and the Rem 240 JHP's.
The brass will be once fired PMC,44 Mag .shot from my brother's Red Hawk.
Any one shot these bullets before?

Welcome to the board roger1shot. Make yourself at home.

I bulk load the Rem. 44-240-HP for locals. This bullet is plenty accurate and more than enough for whitetail. The Magtech's are ok also. It doesn't take much to do a deer, just hit him in the right place.
