I’m beginning to think I might have the names of my powder confused. On my way home from work to check.

Default 44 mag Titegroup Powder

Sorry everyone. I made a mistake. I had the two powders crossed. The titegroup I bought was used to reload 45acp with 230gr Berry’s bullets and 4.5 get of titegroup which was extremely weak. Factory new LAX Ammo hit harder. The 44mag was also using Berry’s bullets but at 240gr bullet weight loaded with 23 grains Winchester 296 powder. Both using Winchester large pistol primers.

My previous post explains that I confused the two different powders I used.

Default Darwin Award

23 gr of TG would have won you the Darwin Award. Be careful with your loads. Know your powders and load max. Serious business.
TG great for 45 ACP. 296 good magnum powder. Unique for mid-range plinking loads.

OP, I'm confused on this one. Did you use 23grains of Titegroup or 23grains of 296 for these 44mag loads?

It must of been the TG and that's why the range personal pulled you from the range.

Glad that your okay.

It turns out that I had made a mistake in my op. I had used 23gr of 296 for the 44mag and 4.5gr of titegroup for the 45. The 44mag is 16 inch octagon barrel lever and felt like a canon in my hands. The 45 felt weak.

We all make mistakes. And in this case I'm not reading much about a Safety-Cartridge-Assembly-Attitudinal-Adjustment.

If you want to see mistakes like these repeated, then let's talk some more about chamber gauges and
about this sales guy at the venture gun show that should have known...

I'm glad you're safe OP.
