44 mag reload date
i have a question about conflicting data for 44 rem mag reloading. i am using both winchester 240 g bullets and nosler 240 g bullets both hollow point semi jacketed. the powder of choice is H110. the nosler info i have says to use 22.8 up to 23.8 g of powder and ALL would be compressed loads to a small percentage. i cannot find ANY info for the winchester bullets but going to hodgdons website it says to use 23 g to 24 g of powder but that is for a hornady XTP bullet. here is the problem. when i seat a nosler to get the correct OAL, it comes up and into the cannelure right about i the middle. if i seat the winchester bullet to the same OAL, it falls short of the cannelure to not even be in it and that would make a good crimp not possible. it i continue to seat the winchester bullet to get to the middle of the cannelure i have reduced the OAL more than .020 and that will change the compressed load to a higher percentage. what chould i do? what i see is that the winchester bullets have the cannelure higher than most all others and to use it will change the powder load density. any help with this is appreciated!
