Lots of Hodgdon but others also. Hodgdon was very helpful answering questions for me some time back so I've leaned toward their products ever since.

I use Hodgdon, Unique (because it was given to me) and Alliant. I use mostly Hodgdon. My dad gave a load book signed by Bruce Hodgdon.

I only use powders from IMR, Hercules/Alliant, Winchester, Hodgdon, and Norma. As was said above, whatever works to get me where I want to go.

These days it comes down to 'whats available' as opposed to what I like. I probably use more Alliant and IMR than anything else but I use every brand except VV.

If I lived in the land of OZ, I would stick to ADI too. I use only Winchester in pistol. In my rifles, I mainly use Hodgdon, but I also use Winchester and AA2520. I too am trying to streamline my powders. On ADI's powder comparison chart, they list Varget, IMR4064, and 2520 as equivilant. I love varget and have had less perssure signs at max loads than with 4064. 2520 is one of my favorite ball powders.

I use ADI and Reloader if that doesn't work. There is not much to choose from down under.

Gidday Code4. Welcome to the best kept secret on the net mate...HuntingNut. Grab a beer and pull up a stump...you will enjoy it here, a great bunch of guys.

Where abouts are you in Oz mate? I use ADI exclusively these days, well until the Spanish powder (PSB 1) I use in my shotgun runs out. You should be able to get other powders fairly easily mate...even if by mail order.

Cheers, Vince
