crap, she couldn't find any IMR2520, had to settle for Win 748, which means 100 fps less velocity. Also had to go with Win 231, breaking my promise to Hercules to always use Bullseye for pistol stuff.

I like 231 okay; not my favorite, but when I was using it a bunch, it worked. I'm not really monogamous with any particular Powder, with the exception of .454's being loaded only with 296.

Other than that, I'm ok with any of several different powders for pretty much any other calibers. I like to have a bunch on hand, so I like it to be as versatile as possible. It ends up meaning that I generally use one or two powders that work 'ok' in several calibers, but not really 'the best' for any one of them. (Most of my loading is 9mm, .45acp, .45Colt, .38spl, and .357magnum.)

I was looking last night at powder to stock up some more; but still not sure whether to go with titegroup, autocomp, 700-X, or BE-86. Titegroup's not ideal for .357mag, but has always done well for me in the other calibers. The BE-86 looks like it may be the most versatile of the four for those calibers, but since I haven't used it before, I need to do some more reading on it before committing...
