Re: Nosler JSP 240gr in 44 mag

Have used VVN110 in .44 Mag a couple of times. Accuracy is good in a long barrelled Super Blackhawk. It does good out of a semi-auto .44 Mag carbine. Not really any change in point of impact or group size versus using H110.

I don't use my .357 that much. For a pistol, it would be my scoped Super BlackHawk. 240 grain JSP and 23.5 grains of H110/W296 for around 1450 fps. It will take anything I hunt. Sure it is heavy and needs a holster. I only got my .357 GP100 less than 2 years ago.
