240 grain with 24 grains H110 is hard to beat. You want to work up to it, but it is really hard to beat H110 in 44 Mag. I could not even guess how much H110 I have used over the years...used to shoot a lot of .44 Mag. AA#9 is pretty good too, and Lil Gun works admirably too. I was just out shooting my 1894 earlier today. It performs really well with N110 using 180 grain XTP’s, but 240 on top of 24 grains H110 is just sweet. Super Blackhawk likes em too. (y)
H110 was my favorite for 44 mag. My loads were similar to yours. Felt fine in the Super Blackhawks but a bit violent in my little Uberti 1873 colt replica.

On to Blue Dot with 240gr plated bullets. XTP charge range is 12.1-13.7gr.

I loaded 3x @12.5gr and 3x @13.0gr

12.5gr = 1315, 1356, 1346 FPS
13.0gr = 1345, 1376, 1366 FPS

Honestly, 0.5gr only made 20fps difference even out of that 20” barrel so really not worth wasting the extra powder. 1370fps is 1,000lbs of energy so they are hovering just below that mark.
I used 10gr of Blue Dot in .45 ACP for close to 1,100 fps with 200 gr cast bullets. It was a well tuned (ramped, ported, and polished 1911).
