I've shot it in the Charter Bulldog, Cimarron P , Black Powder frame EMF Hartford , 1920's 2nd mod HE and a Colt Mod P . Never had a problem yet and don't expect to either. Skeeter shot it in Rugers and Colts both . This was his every day load(8.5 gr Unique) not his Hot load (17.0 gr 2400) for .44 Special . I shoot both 7.5 and the 8.5 .
Good enough for me .

P.S. Lyman #45 the 1970 edition lists 5 gr starting with 8.0 gr max with either 429383 or 429421 cast in their #2 alloy . They did not list pressure . Max for the 429244 in #2 is listed as 7.9 gr . Speer #7 (1968) lists 9.0 gr max with a .429 diameter 250 gr cast which is what the original Keith 429421 is .
