Welcome to the Forum!
Please understand, we follow factory reloading manuels as our guides. I have had excellent results from the IMR 4227 in a maxie myself. Just follow the manuel,, and work up a load that is accurate in your gun!

What gun? TC? Ruger? Seville?

Cartridge O.A.L. can be adjusted to increase performance and accuracy.

Oh, you have Terry Bradshaw's Hawkeye Maxi?

tomfish, welcome. Was shooting my maxi today with the same bullet and 2400. My load came from either a lyman or speer book. SR primers and start at 12.5 grains. I shoot alot of 180gr. cast with gas check.
Check this out. Lots of good stuff here. www.lasc.us page down on the right side and look for articles of Glen E Fryxell.
IMR 4247 seems to be the #1 powder.
