Now I have searched some and found where people have used Lil'Gun for lead bullets in .44 Mag to good result.

5 data points per powder load/bullet/primer combination unless otherwise noted. Chrono positioned approximately 10-feet from the muzzle.
.44 Mag 248-gr Coated SWCHP, WLP LPP, Lil' Gun Powder, 1.685-1.690" COAL
Taurus 44 with 6.5" barrel
20.0-gr AVERAGE = 1315 fps; ES = 78
21.0-gr AVERAGE = 1311 fps; ES = 148
22.0-gr AVERAGE = 1240 fps; ES = 307
Ruger Super Redhawk with 9.5" ported barrel
20.0-gr AVERAGE = 1383 fps; ES = 42
Oddly, as I increased the charge of Lil'Gun powder the average velocity decreased while the extreme spread went positively WILD. Seeing as how the 20.0-gr load was fast enough with acceptable ES I then proceeded to send that through my 9.5" Ruger SRH and was plenty pleased with how it performed there.
