    I don't how much Unique I used, but I loaded a number of similar load about 15 years ago. They worked fine and great for their intended purpose.

    One of the reasons I did them for a couple of young(5 & 7) beginning shooters. They have a lot more fun when every shot hits the balloon, tin can, etc.

    Is that barge cement in the bottle?
    I made some similar loads last year for 44mag. The load was lighter, 5 gr of tight group, and a .44 mag has less space for shot than .45.
    The pistol was also lighter, scandium framed S&W, and recoil made my crimped in gas check for top wad come loose after a couple of shots.
    I have been giving a lot of thought to a proper glue to use.
    To lazy to chase arrows.
