My gun likes 43 grains of AA 5744 with 250 grain .452 XTP with the short MMP sabot. I am going to try some VV N110 with a 250 grain Barnes Expander but I would not hesitate to shoot AA5744. If that load and powder combo works GREAT shoot it.

I understand that AA5744 is very good for dependable ignition in wide climate ranges, and as hunters from Indiana can attest too, temperatures swing from -20 to 50+ degrees during the firearms and muzzleloading seasons here. I need a powder that will be reliable for that kinda temp change.
I would love to shoot a faster load but I am looking for a good hunting load for Central Indiana.
