So anyone here use alliant 2400 to load 44 rem mag? How do you like it?
I have been loading 200gr hornady HP-XTP's but would like to give some bigger ones a try. I have been useing unique with great results. Its very clean burning (and thats a big plus for a gas operated gun), and my gun has never shot better. (desert eagle)
But the loading bug is biteing me in the butt and I want to try diffrent weight bullets and other loads. I am gonna stick with hornady HP-XTP's because my local store stocks them more than any other, plus I like them. But my load book (hornady) only lists loads with unique for the 180, 200, and 240gr bullets. It does not list unique for the 265 and 300gr bullets. I was checking out alliants website and they say this about 2400 "Legendary for its performance in .44 magnum and other magnum pistol loads" So I was wondering if anyone here uses it and how well they like it. How clean does it burn?
I have read a little around online and it seems like lots of people use H110, but I also hear and read that it is also a pretty dirty burning powder. Being that these loads will be shot from a semi auto gas operated gun, I would like to stay away from dirty buring powders.
Thanks for any help
