Accurate Arms #5, their competitor to Unique... Six grains in the 9mm behind a 125-grain lead round nose, a 158-grain SWC in a .38 Special, or a 175-grain round nose in the .40 S&W. I shoot 11 grains behind a 44 mag 250 SWC or a 210-220 grain SWC in the .41 Mag, and 4.5 grains in the .380 with 100-grain pills. Haven't played with it in the .32 H&R, 45 Colt or 45 ACP yet, but so far it is pretty darned good in what you see listed above.
Unique and accurate arms number 5 Both of these powders will do most pistols and reduced loads in many rifles. Be careful in the reduced rifle loads as problems can arise with large case capacitys . I know we are talking about pistols here but have to tell yall about my great reduced 3030 load . I cast 130 grain bullets which shoot great out of m1 carbine pistols Automag and Ruger Not with unique or num 5. (but could be loaded) I use 6.8 grains of aa# 5 in 3030s with 2 inch groups at 100 yds on a good day. Non gas checked no leading after 100 rounds ( no filler added too , bullet sized to 309 dia ) crono broken but will penetrate 3inch maple tree and blow the crap out of cans I suspect1400 mabee with no recoil and no ear muffs good shooting to yuall from Kentucky

Hodgdon HS6, which is pretty much the same sort of stuff as Win. 231. I like the way it fills the cases for 38/357, 45 ACP. For 44 mag. I go with Hodgdon H110, which is formulated specifically for this caliber.
But HS6 works for 44 mag, if I could only use one.
