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.
Your loads will be ok. Now had you loaded 240 gr XTPs under a maximum (for lead) load of 26 gr of H110 then Id say pull the bullets and start over. but you goofed in the right direction
My only other advice is to try not to shoot yourself in the foot since you are a new england fan and all
