When developing new loads,how much do you guys very powder weights? I'm trying to work up a load for my Ruger Redhawk 7 1/2" 44 mag.I've got 300gr sp & 240gr hp bullets and h-110 & 2400 powders.Been loading in 1/2 gr increments,sound ok? SGB
I also work in .2 or .3 gr increments for pistol work-ups. .2gr for faster powders and .3gr for slower powders.
Once I find a load I like, I load that plus & minus 1 tenth to see if there is any improvement. Then it's done. Now if it was a rifle load - THEN I would play with OAL some at that point to see if I could improve it anymore.
