When you compared 7.5 gr. of unique in 44 special brass to 8.5 gr. of unique in magnum brass; both with the same bullet, what kind of numbers did your chronograph yield?
Same chronograph recorded the following:

.44 Mag 6 1/2" barrel 240g SWC
8.5g Unique, CCI-300, AVG 1053fps
.44 Special 5 1/2" barrel 240g SWC
7.5g Unique, CCI-300, AVG 1033fps

.44 Mag 6 1/2" barrel 240g SWC
10.0g Unique, CCI-300, AVG 1136fps
