tmk,

In your .44 Redhawk, seat the bullet out to the .500" nose to crimp length, taking full advantage of the long cylinder on the Redhawk.  

Begin with this for a starting load, and work up as pressure signs and prudence dictate!  I'm not going to advocate a top load here, as different guns behave as individuals.

Try starting with this:

BTB .432"-405g WLNGC seated to .500" NTC length/18.0g H110-W296/WLPP/Win Brass/1050+ fps.

<span style='color:red'>This load is</span> <span style='color:blue'><span style='font-size:10pt;line-height:100%'>ONLY</span></span><span style='color:red'>for use with a <span style='font-size:10pt;line-height:100%'>.500" nose to crimp length</span></span> in either Ruger Redhawks, Colt Anacondas, Bill Grover's Custom .44 single action revolver, or TC Contender/Encore single shots!

Let us know what you get in your load workups!

God Bless,

Marshall
