I tend to give up 50-100 or so fps off the top end in magnums using 2400, but I get a lot more flexibility.

Anyway, back to .44 special - you'll have a hard time finding something that performs as well as Unique, particularly with cast loads.
I feel the same about H110/296. To me it is about as close to a "controlled explosion" as you can get. I refer to it as a "one trick pony" it does one thing-operate at maximum. I keep a container around just to see if it gives better accuracy in a heavy hunting load in a given gun/bullet combination, than my more "progressive powders".
