Someone mentioned SR4759. This is an excellent powder for cast loads, but I didn't mention it in my original post because it's been discontinued.
It's still on the shelf at my LGS and i wonder if I should pick up a few more pounds. Perhaps people aren't interested in reduced loads like they used to be and the 4759 isn't exactly flying off the shelves. That may also be why they discontinued it. It's darn useful for those of us that do use reduced loads.
