This load was taken from the Alliant guide. However, it seems to shoot better about 1 gr higher. Probably not good for most 44 specials, fine for the 629’s. Sincerely, David Smith

Hogden did not discontinue h4227 powder. They have repackaged the powder under the imr4227 lable. Check to make sure that the powder was manufactured in Australia. This is identical to the old h4227. Excellent load in 7.5 inch barrel. It is the only powder on the market that will launch a 240 gr. bullet at 900 ft/sec and still be at the pressure limits of the 44 special. You can actually load this up about 1.5 grs higher in the 44 special if shooting from 629. Very accurate.
