Reply | Edit | Del All 44 mag load data for AA#9
I was wondering if any of you hand loaders have any data for AA#9 and the following bullets.

Hornady 240 gr. XTP/HP
Speer Gold Dot 270 gr. soft point

Can't find any load data anywhere,not sure why. I have tried the following resources.

Sierra Handgun Reloading Manual
Lee Modern Reloading
Midway 44 mag Loadmap
Accurate Arms Web Load data for AA#9

Thanks in advance.

I've been tempted to try some # 9 Accurate powder.

The 2002 Reloaders Guide from Accurate is as follows for 240 grain lead SWC bullet...

Note: These test velocities are from using a Ruger Redhawk with 7.5 inch barrel. This is a heavy duty firearm, hope your gun is up to these pressures.

19.5 grains is Starting load at 1426 fps.

21.7 grains is Maximum load at 1550 fps.

Primer is CCI 300, 240 grain lead bullet is seated 1,560 OAL.

So, if you've got a chrono you can play around between them numbers, but don't go over or under those numbers...and you should be safe using the Speer and Accurate chart tables.

Let us know how they work for you.
