    I wanted to try some 1oz. loads of Unique. But I can't find any 1oz listings on their website. Is Unique a no no for 1oz? Was hoping to cook something up using Fed. Gold Medal Hulls Chedite primers and Claybuster Wads.

    Wrong powder for 1 oz loads. It works really good for 1200fps+ 1 1/8 oz loads.

    I didn't choose it. I was a given 4lbs. And seeing I only shoot 1 oz loads. Hence the question.

    Thats probably why it was given to you. Its dirtier than hell. shoot a couple of rounds and then look down your barrell. Its allright in a break open but I would not shoot it in an auto. my experience alex

    Unique makes a great lower pressure 1200-1310 fps 1 1/8oz loads.

    Not suitable for 1 oz. Make up some 1 1/8 oz handicap or 2nd shot doubles or longer shot sporting shells.

    Unique is also used for 20 or 28 ga. shells. I use it for both and it makes an excellent shell in either ga.

    It's a bit dirtier than other powders but who cares, I clean my guns and the effort it takes to clean my gun is the same regardless of shell or powder.

    1 oz - Look into some Alliant Clay Dot. Where are you located? I have some clay dot. Maybe we can trade.

    Unique makes a great "pigeon load".

    Read Elmer Keith and Skeeter Skelton's articles on Unique for full power handgun loads. I use a lot of it for .38/.357./.45, great powder.
