I have used that bullet for years and it shoots well--casts well- and I took my first handgun deer with it- --a 4 cavity mold just went for 230.00 on e-bay - I never wanted a mold that badly- -- as to loading data plenty on the net- you can use 220 grain jacketed data-
Hodgdon has load data for heavy cast bullets in 41 mag - up to 265 - maybe even 300 gr. H4227 and H110 seem to work well. I'm messing with Lil Gun and some 250 gr Jacketed bullets but split some cases and think I'll go back to those other 2 powders for the heavy stuff.
41059 seems to shoot very well in my 4" model 57 at around 1000 fps and Unique powder? Graybeard (Bill) just got through running a special price on LBT molds but, alas, I was broke at the time or I would have ordered a heavier LFN mold in both .41 and .44 calibers, probably 250 in .41 and 300 in .44. Story of my life? I think most here don't know what we've got in Bill, thanks Bill, for the offers Hope the forum made out on the deal.
