Default RCBS Little Dandy Rotor #'s for 244 & CFE Pistol

Has anyone worked up rotor # and powder grains thrown for 244 and CFE Pistol powder using the Little Dandy, and if so would you please share them?
These specific powders are too new to be listed on the Little Dandy Rotor Charge Table and was wondering if anyone has taken on that project to figure it out.

I have a Redding Competition 10X powder measure that I love, but it is just so nice and simple to use the Little Dandy and I was thinking how nice it would be to use it with these powders, #244 and CFE Pistol if someone had worked up a table for that. Just curious, thanks all.

I like & use my ‘Little Dandy’ often. I was lucky to see then buy the adjustable rotor for it from ‘Bailey Boat’ on the firing line forums. I’m not sure if he’s still there, this was 10 or so years ago.

With this adjustable rotor one can tune it from light 380 loads to up near 10 grains of powder, after that I go to my rifle quantity powder measure.

Not sure I’d want to be limited to fixed rotors, but I’ve only used this adjustable one.

The CFE Pistol is on this chart. It should give you an approximation by looking at nearby powders.

EDIT: The 244 is on there, too. Just find a powder that's the sme or close density that IS on the Little Dandy chart and you've got a starting point. As always, you need to verify the charge on a real scale.
