Experiences with Titegroup in magnum rounds


Are there any folks out there who have experience with Hodgdon's Titegroup powder in .357 and .44 magnum loads? I did a search and there doesn't seem to be much on it in general, but there seems to be a good amount of loading data at their website for it.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Well, this is NOT a FULL magnum load. However, it has a nice .357 Magnum recoil that I find manageable and comfortable to shoot.

125gr. Win JHP
7.0gr. TiteGroup
Win Primer
Mixed Brass
OAL: 1.573
FPS: 1,100
Gun: S&W Model 28-2 w/6" Barrel

With 158gr JHP's...

158gr JHP
6gr. TiteGroup
Win Primer
Mixed Brass
OAL: 1.542
Gun: S&W Model 28-2 w/6" Barrel
(Moved back to 5.8gr. TiteGroup, saw
no gain by using 6gr. over 5.8)

Both loads...NOT full power, I look for
less than full, with a reasonable recoil so
I know I'm shooting a .357...clear as mud?

Good luck, and as always, check your
manuals before trying ANY loads offered
by myself or others.

'cowboy' data for 'cowboy'-level loads; perfect.

NOT for 'heavies'.
