I would like to load this bullet to about 1100 fps for use in a 44 bisley that I carry in Alaska while fishing. I can shoot this velocity very well and would rather hit them in the vitals at 1100 than on the fringe at 1350.
Any advise as to a load?

Thank You
Ed

That bullet is pretty similar to the Lyman 429640 that is now discontinued by Lyman. I load it with 22.5 grains of either W296 or H110 to about that velocity. I'm not 100% certain of the crimp groove location on the LBT as compared to the Lyman so am not sure if this load is right for it or not. But it's what I use.

Thank You for the info. I received two powders and loads with the bullets one was AA9 and the other was 296 at approx 20.5 grains. I didn't want to reduce the 296 load because I've been told not to reduce ball powders. It sounds like I may get what I want from 296.
I am headed for Prince of Wales Island Alaska for some fishing and black Bear hunting the first 9 days in Sept. so I need to work on a load for my 44 fishing gun!
Thanks Again,
Ed
