    yea, I shoot a bit.
    I have a fair assortment of powders by variety, many becuse of rifle calibers and new calibers like the 223/556 and 300 Win mag where I have once tried several powders for perfomance before really deciding on one powder for the caliber.
    BUt in pistols I use Acc #5 for 9MM, 38 Super, 10 MM and 45 acp as it produces very good accuracy and more than decient performance in all the claibers with a variety of projectiles.
    so I kind of use that one powder for all 4 calibers.
    during the great powder depression a few years back I was using Hs-6 as a replacemnet for Acc #5 and still have a couple pounds of it.
    it definitely serves the same purpose as the acc #5 for me.
    I also have Hp-38 as a kind of use for might near everything and I do load a few defensive laods with it and of course Unique which you can laod everything from a 22 short to an atomic bomb with if push come to shove.
    I just like to kind of stock no more different powders than i need and makes buying larger size quanities easier.

    So how much unique do we need to make a small atomic bomb? About 8 lbs or so?

    small??
    as you likely have heard SIZE does matter, so exactly how small is small?
    For a really small one I would suggest using trail boss !

    Made it to Recob's on Sat. and picked up 7k Winchester Small Pistol Primers. Prices were $140.69 per 5k and $29.19 per 1k put me at $199.07, right at the rebates limit... Also pick up another pound of HP-38 and a pound of AA#2 which saved me a bit more than another $8.00...

    It was well worth the trip!

    When they can figure out how to legislate Morality and Conscience I will consider talking more gun laws.
