Re: Nosler JSP 240gr in 44 mag

I use 240gr XTPs over 23gr. of IMR4227. The velocity is right around 1500 in a 16" 94 Trapper.
Gunny may be right regarding the XTP if you are driving it for all the speed you can.
I usually don't, however, and find the XTP an accurate and versatile bullet.

Re: Most used/useful load

I don't know if its most used, but its handy.
I use a plated 158gr RN over 6.5gr. Unique in .357. This load is easy shooting but has enough to do something if need be. It clocks 950 from a 4" model 66, about 1k from a 5.5" 2nd Gen SAA, and 1350 from a 20" Rossi src.

Not bad Doc. Were those cast or jacketed?
The group from my 44 was the 240XTP over 23gr of IMR4227. Not very hot. They muzzle about 1500 from the Trapper and are pleasant to shoot.
