I'm seeing powder prices coming down. Not all the way but a lot better then a short time ago. For 44 special in my Ruger flattop I load 7 to 7.5 gr of Unique with coated 240 gr semi wadcutters. I load some lighter bullets in special or 44 Russian cases for a Taurus 445 snub I have. The 240 gr semiwadcutters also feed great in my 44 mag Marlin lever action in magnum cases.
