With the plethora of new powders now available, a current manual (or 2) will be exceedingly useful.

I ONLY used Bullseye and Unique for over 30 years. I had IMR for rifles. When I got into magnum loads, then I added 2400.

That's all I NEED, but the powder shortages of the past few years have caused me to branch out to a dozen other powders for pistol and two for rifle.
