    Blue Dot works really well for anything between mouse fart loads and equivalent factory loads. Same with Bullseye. Unique works well in every pistol round i reload, but it’s a little on the dirty side. H110 makes a great hot load for 44 Magnum, but powder charge accuracy becomes a priority. If your charge is below their published minimum, it could detonate instead of igniting.

    Unique is great but doesn't load Magnum rounds well. Too bulky to get enough in the case for full power loads.

    2400 is my go to Magnum powder.

    Are you just looking for something cleaner burning?

    Not sure how the new powders work on that.

    Cleaner burning and a little faster. I don't load full power much.

    I've made a lot of reduced power loads using CFE pistol. It seems to work great and is very accurate. My hot loads are with H110, but those get uncomfortable to shoot after a while.

    BlueDot gets a little sensitive toward max loads. Why I quit using it about 30 years ago. The experts called it "pressure excursions". I don't need any of those! LOL!
