For clay target shooting, and close upland bird hunting(grouse
and woodcock), I load Hodgdon Universal Clays. Meters well, and
burns clean. And I load it in 12, 20, and 28 gauge. As the
name states, "Universal". It also loads nice target ammo for
9mm, 40 S&W, and 45 ACP.
For hunting ammo, I like Blue Dot, Long Shot, and Steel, for
magnum and waterfowl non-tox loading. For heavy field loads,
800x. I miss HS-7.
I ended up with some Herco and Unique, when my brother passed,
and I have no issues with this powder, other than in my loads,
it seems to burn a bit dirtier.
