    My step Daddy used to load a 38 up like that, or alternated round for self defense. Then years later The Judge came out, he bought two. Momma got one fer each night stand.

    That .45 will do it! I load 255 lead SWC's with 7.8 grains of Unique to shoot in the wimpy Uberti .45's.

    For the .45 Blackhawk I load either 250 grain Hornady XTP JHP's or 255 SWC's with 19.5 grains of 2400 powder. Ruger Only Load :eek:

    I can use other powder and up the load too but this load does fine. The heavy load of unique dropped a buck at 50 yards 1 shot to eye fell instantly

    Unique is my favorite powder for hand guns. Been trying to convince Leo to get some Unique.

    Between the two of us maybe we can talk him in do doing it.(y)

    Yep...good stuff. Unique and 2400 are the only two hand gun powders I use. I only use the 2400 for .357 & .44 magnums. When I run out of 2400 I'll just stick with the Unique.

    Unique works great in .38 Super autos as well.

    My next jug of powder is " Unique " ! I bought that Hs-6 to get started & soon leaned it wasn't the best powder . I wish they had it stock that day @ 50 percent off because Ralph told me to start w/ that . After researching the same 70's Speer manual we both have I know why . A lot more recipes ! Buying the Hs-6 powder was a big Newbie mistake .:whistle: Though it shoots well w/ 6.1 g & a 148 cast WC using a Mag primer in my Ruger 357 & I lightened the powder loads for my short piped S&W mod 10 . (38spl loads ):)
