    I think I've settled in on 23gr of H110 for these Hornady 225gr FTX bullets. I use the standard Lee case length trimmer and do not trim to the recommended length because...hey...I have a Redhawk. The cylinder is longer than the competition for a good reason.

    I worked up in halves from 21gr, peaked out on 23.5, but backed off a half for convenience sake of having a whole number. I could have gone 24, [email protected] 23.5, the primers are starting to flatten out. No cratering though.

    Will REHPT & chrony them when I get a chance.
