Question for 44 mag reloaders........

Is it just me or is H110 very dirty? I shot 30 rounds yesterday and my pretty silver S & W 629 was black. Any advice?
Thanks, Kirk

    My revolver is stainless too, and it's always black after 5 or 6 cylinders. It wipes right off; I just think it's the nature of the best with magnum revolvers.

    IMO, H110 burns best in heavy loads. If your loading light, you'll get cleaner burning with Unique or Titegroup.

    Pretty much the nature of powder on nickel or stainless.. The H110 & W296 being the same and pretty much the go to powder for the .44 Mag why change.. But you might try'.., depending on your bullet weight AA9, IMR-4227, Blue Dot, 2400, V.V N110, Lil'Gun and Enforcer see if they show less powder residue..

    without knowing bullet/primer/etc. hard to tell.
    iwould try a heavier crimp for better "burn"
