Hi All,

am having trouble getting my .44 mag to shoot well.

Anyone got any good loads using 245g and 200g Jacketed bullets, using either Unique or 2400??

Brand new 1894PG, 20" Barrell, ballard-type rifling. Am really struggling to get any kind of consitent results.

Tried 13g Unique behind a 245g Jacketed bullet, and not very good at all. Sometimes the bullets even keyhole.

Very dissapointed Marlin owner so far!

What is your purpose for the load?

Hi Hobie,

Purely target shooting. Out to 100yds. Would like to shoot in comps, but am not sure if I will be able to find a load less than 1200 fps?

Thanks,

Ross

I personally like the site that Leftoverdj gave you.... It's allot of low velocity loads that are used in SASS comps....

And they make some good critter getters too!!!!
