    If you had one choice in Gun Powder what it be?

    Me?? I go with IMR 4064 It works great in my .3006 and my .308.
    I have used it in my first 7MAG and it shot accurate better than my .223.

    If I had to choose one it would likely be IMR4350, or IMR4831, or RL22, or H1000, or, or, or,.....:)

    Wow, I would load up a full case of 30/06Spfld with Bullseye and put the stock against my nose and pull the trigger! You guys are depressing me. Only one powder!

    BTW, how much Varget, 4350, 4064 do you run in a 45LC? I wil probably have nightmares from this mental trauma.

    270WSM, 300WSM, 300WBY, 338WIN, 30-06, Id have to pick..... RL-19 or H-4350, or IMR-4831.
    It's just not possible to narrow it down that far you Gotta have at least 3-5 powders for a fairly large array of cartriges from 22-33 cal.

    I think I might agree on this.

    You two are cheating. The question was which "1" powder would you choose. H-4831 would be my second choice.

    Loading ammo from the 204 to 338edge there is no one powder.......But if the question is wich powder I would miss the most=H414/W760. For some reason I've got three factory rifles and a custom that like H414 and H414 only even though I wish otherwise!

    I'm down to two already-Varget and H4831sc. Were I have to go to just one, it'd be Varget, I'd just quit shooting magnums.
