I probably must sound like an Alliant salesman, but when you get the time some day, take a look at ALL the pistol cartridges and bullet weights and I think you will see why I am a "fan" of Unique. ...

Powders

If you're looking for one powder that will perform well with all the cartridges and bullet weights you list, hands down I would choose Alliant(former Hercules) Unique. One of the oldest, and without...

You got that right. If it wasn't lead it would be something else. Let 'em worry about their own health and stay the hell out of other people's lives.

Yes, it is sad that 1 or 2% of all shooters have decided they could not sleep well at night without owning at least 25,000 primers of every size. And after all if someone in the gov wanted to shut...
