Titegroup is my favorite powder for .44special and magnum.
With a 250gr Keith, I have had good results with 5 grains for around 800fps.

Have only loaded the 240gr cast with Titegroup. Makes for a good accurate plinking load. Cannot get any speed with listed data. I like around 900fps with the 240 and 7gr of Unique seems to be the load that works for me.

Titegroup provides excellent ballistics with lead bullets but a bit too much smoke for my taste. I have recently switched to Trail Boss for all my lead bullet revolver loads. A real plus of Trail Boss that it is so bulky that you virtually cannot get a double charge. In contrast Titegroup is very dense and one can get multiple charges in those old straight sided black powder cartridges like 38 Special, 44 Special and 45 Colt.
