Haven't tried it, though it's THE traditional magnum pistol powder.

I mostly run H110.

2400's a good powder for ALL magnums, very forgiving and very flexible.  It can be downloaded if you don't mind it shooting dirty (Just showing it's versatility as most cannot be).

 For me 2400's been SUPER hard to find around here until I lucked across 7 pounds worth a few months ago.

   I primarily use AA#9 for heavy loads and AA#5 for light loads as that was always readily available and is still one of the cheaper powders.

2400 is the go-to powder for .41 Mag and .357 Mag loads around here.  If you work up max or near-max loads with standard primers, DO NOT switch to magnum primers without backing off the powder charge, it will push pressures up noticeably.   Other than that,  it's a great powder for small to mid-range magnums.
