Actually, I use fffg Grafs BP in mine.  It shoots cleaner than the old Unique.

Indeed.  There are few things in life that cannot be improved with a full case of 3f!

Back when I shot NRA Bullseye matches the standard load 3.5 grains of Bullseye, 200 cast semi wad cutter bullet. When we started mounting electronic sights on the slide, we kicked it up to 4 grains. This info is probably of no use to your shooting.

Red Dot, Clays or Clay Dot work well for me. Doubles as my shotgun powder. Was at the Raleigh NC show this past weekend and powder is back 100%. Any brand or size you could possibly want. I figured that the hoarders only had so much disposable income to tie up in reloading supplies and that at some point the suppliers would catch up. Now if we can ever get ahead of the.22 hoarders we might see reasonable .22s again.

Unique works in just about everything straight wall... a very versatile powder.

It has a wide, useful range... you can make both light practice loads and moderately heavy loads with it.

You will hear people mention that it is dirty, but the newer formulation is cleaner. As long as you are getting it in plastic rather than cardboard containers it is most likely the newer, cleaner burning formula.
