I picked up a pound of Unique today, just because I wanted to try it and it was only $19.97, haven't seen a pound of that for a few years and thought I'd tinker with it.
AA5 has worked good for me, groups seem to stay around that 2-2.5" mark, and I'm up to 11 grains (still way down off of max), the powder is burning WAY cleaner than the 9.5 grain loads. I'm up to 980FPS with that, I think my next loading evening I'm going to load up 11.6 grains of AA#5 and call it good, still below the max that Accurate-powders sent me (12.8 grains is max), and should be running that 1050-1100FPS range.
I'm going to fiddle a bit with jacketed bullets, but I'm spoiled with the low cost of lead
Got some H110 and plan on getting some Accurate #9 and Win296 as well.
I have 2400 but...only 3/4 of a pound and it is IMPOSSIBLE....to find. period. I find other suitable powders like H110, A#9,etc. but haven't seen any 2400 for probably 3 years around here. I'm hoarding my precious........
Been loading up some .357 with 180 hardcasts using A#5, going right at 1,000FPS. Accuracy ain't real great so I'll do some tweaking with it.
Loaded up some 38/44 loads using once-fired Federal brass, also A#5. 158hardcasts at around 980FPS. Shoot damn near one-hole groups at 25 yards in my guns.
My loads seem a bit smoky but I think it's the bullet lube, one reason I got the unique to try, just to see if it changes at all.
Edit: They had some blue dot come in today and was going to get some, but a guy got the last 2 cans just as I went to get some other stuff
Must not be a bad powder, the store said they had 15 pounds come in and it was gone within about 4 hours.
