Winchester 244 powder

Has anybody used the 244 yet? Looks like it could be a substitute for Unique.

.45 Colt with a 200 grain bullet calls for 6.7 grains to 9 grains. Very similar to Unique.

I just started using 244

For the reason you describe... Unique is not available anywhere that I am aware of... I have been using 244 in 45 Colt and 44-40... There is not much reloading data on 244 probably because it’s a relatively new power, so I have been proceeding with caution and have been satisfied with its performance... it’s not as dirty as unique and has similar performance characteristics.
