For just recreational shooting, I stick with cast bullets, and faster to moderate burning powders.
I've found W-231 works alright for plinking rounds in the .44, Unique seems to work a bit better in the larger case, and Trail Boss makes for some light shooting ammo, without worrying about that nasty double charge, it's just only to be used with cast bullets..
I've had some of the best luck between low recoil and accuracy using a 180 gr LRNFP and a charge of W-231 just a hair over the starting load. out of a .44 spl case.
For exact recipes check out your loading manual, all I can do is mention components that have worked for me to try to point you in the right direction.
