    Cast loads for a 44-40

    I'm looking for a cast load for an original 1873 Winchester in 44-40 for plinking, any suggestions will be appreciated.
    Just a nice mild load for once in a while range trips...

    I would love to, but haven't had the chance.

    I am happy with 5.5 to 6.2 grains of Trail Boss in my 44/40 rifle with a 200gr. cast bullet, it is the only powder that I know of that fills the case so much that it cannot be double charged without over flowing.
