Howdy,just getting started in loading for a 44 mag.
barrel on my Encore.As far as brass goes,are the
brands interchangeable or do I need to stick to the
brand used in particular recipes in my manuals?
I also would like opinions on bullets in the 240-300
grain range out of a 20" barrel.Thanks for any and
all suggestions on powders for both plinking and
hunting loads as well.

As far as brass goes , they are interchangeable as long as they are the same cal. Don't try to reload cci blazers or steel cases though .

The 44 mag is a perdy good all around round for the contender , some seen to like the lighter bullets and some like heavy ones you will have to find what it likes. here is a link to some real good load data.

Steve has a lot of knowledge to share.

If you need anymore help all you have to do is ask :grin:
