44 Magnum/Special Loading Data Question

floorguy24floorguy24 Member Posts: 1,343 ✭✭✭✭✭
I'm going to be loading Hornaday 200gr HP/XTP .430 bullets using Hodgdon Universal Powder. The online Hodgdon 44 Magnum chart calls for either 10 or 11.1 grains, but only lists a .429 JHP 200 gr bullet and not a .430. The same thing applies (but in different grain numbers, of course) for the 44 Special chart loads. They only list the 200gr in a .429, and not a .430.

Does this matter? Can I still go with the grain numbers they're listing?

I don't want to use the wrong amount since I'm using .430, not .429.

Thanks. [:D]
