    Was going to place an order soon, wanted to load up to save on shipping. Currently reload only 9mm, looking to move onto 45 acp. I have a good amount of unique and a little bit of titegroup left. Titegroup is sold out.

    What are some other powders you guys like to use?

    I really like Unique for pistol rounds. 7.3gr will push a 200gr SWC at damn-near 1100fps out of my 220. 7.5 was a little much though and flattened every primer

    I use Unique for .38 and .44 spec rounds.

    I use 296, H110 and LIL'GUN for magnum stuff. (.357, .44, and in the past .480)
    Lil' Gun is an interesting powder but I don't know how it would work in your application. I think there are some people using it for 9mm and 45 though.

    my only gripe with unique is that it does not meter very well out of the dillon

    HS-6 works well out of a Dillion, I've loaded up a few thousand rounds for USPSA.
