    I found some Ramshot Competition at a decent price. Has anyone used it for light .44 special loads using cast bullets? The label says it's useful for cowboy action loads. I checked Ramshot's load data. They show data for .45 Colt loads along with other handgun rounds, but no data for .44 special. Can anyone provide information on this powder with the .44 special? Thanks as always.

    A buddy of mine uses 5.0gr of Competition with a 240gr LSWC in a .44RM case (a little more room than the special case), very soft shooting. Maybe start a little below that and work up, Competition is a very fast target shotgun powder.

    If you start a lot below 5, just make sure you get an impact with every pull of the trigger.
