Default 44Spl and CFE Pistol

I had a most pleasant experience at the range yesterday. I had scored 200 new Starline 44Spl cases awhile back and just got around to searching out a load for which I had most of the specified components.
On Hogdons website I found a load for a 200gr Nosler over CFE Pistol lit up by a WLPP. I started at 6.3gr, then 6.6 and 6.9gr. The 6.3 and 6.9 grain loads were very satisfying. Shooting 15 yards with my 4" M29 the 6.3 produced a 1.7" 6 shot group and the 6.9gr a 1.2" group. The 6.3gr load was so mild it felt about like a stout 38spl load, very pleasant. I believe though that the 6.9gr load will be my load. No pressure signs at all, clean clean burn, accurate and just fun to shoot.
