Depends what I'm loading for....target from any of my pistols, I like Rainier or hard cast. For hunting out of my 357 or 44 I like Speer Deep Curl.

i only reload plinking and target shooting loads for handguns. i use berrys and rainer whichever is cheaper when i order. i dont handgun hunt deer sized game but i do handgun hunt rabbits with a 1911 i use plated 230 grn fmj for that just pokes holes killing the rabbit instantly.

i take that back i do use 300grn .429 jacketed soft points from speer in my ruger 44 carbine now and then. no one else offers a 300grn sp in 429

I have a Lee melting pot, a set of molds, and a couple of tire shops that remember the kindly old coot that shows up on a hot day with a cold six pack. Straight wheel weights make good plinking loads.

I'm with c3 too. I even pick up tire weights on the street when I take walks. All they are is wannabe boolits.

45 ACP for 1911--230 gr RN Bear Creek moly.
45 ACP for revolver--185 gr Berry's HBRN plated
9mm for Production and Single Stack divisions---147 gr Montana Gold CMJ
9mm for Open division--124 gr Precision Delta FMJ

Those 4 cover about 80% of my pistol shooting, around 20,000 rds/yr.
