    I know it's like asking 7 1/2's or 8's. But it's a new year, and things change. So,--- what's your powder of choice, ---- AND WHY? Softer, cheaper, cleaner, patterns better, ect?

    I like the old Dupont Co. slogan: "Better Living through Chemistry"

    Been reloading it since the early 70's with no problems.

    I'll have to go with timb99 on this one except I still use Titegroup on my 1 oz loads as well. Everything else he has dead on!

    Hodgdon's International for handicap.


    Hodgdon's Clays for 16 yards and doubles.



    Cost. At one time I was a devote PB user. These two Hodgdon powders are approximately $20.00 LESS than PB. So, back in 2006 I started using Hodgdon's powders. These are great powders and I am very pleased with them. Along with cost, they meter to within +/- .02 grains.
