    I used to load with Clays, now Im using CFE Pistol. Its about the same burn speed as Win 231. Get the loading data from Hodgdon powders, I would give it to you here, but always confirm loads through your powder manufacturer.

    I too use Unique for all my reloads. It is a little smokey but not bad. Just picked up 32 pounds locally.

    Used to use w231, but have now switched over to BE -86 , works in most handguns, and meters extremely well.

    I'm not familiar with BE-86 powder. Can you tell us more about it? Thanks, Denny

    What is your criteria for best powder?
    Highest velocity?
    Best accuracy?
    Most consistent metering?
    What?
    For best velocity, I like powders around 231/HP38, N320, and Green Dot.
    For best accuracy, I like Bullseye and 231/HP38
    For most consistent metering, I like AA2 and N320
    Most economical is probably TiteGroup in terms of cost per fps.
    If I had to choose one powder, it would be 231/HP38.
