Re: Don't understand treating copper plated like lead bullets
I loaded about 250 rounds off .44 mag with 23g H110 and 240 gr Ranier hp. I mistakenly thought that they were FMJ and loaded accordingly. Now I am a bit nervous about these loads. There isnt any data on 240 gr lead with that powder. If I compare other powders it seems like the lead bullets take More powder. Bue dot the load for fmj is 13.1 with a velocity of 1380 fps but with a lead bullet the load is 15.2 gr ith a velocity of 1475 fps. My question is my .44 load going to be safe? I have shot a bunch of them before I realized my error and they all worked fine.
