    I could get by with Unique. Would it be stellar in every thing I load for, no, but I could get by without being too handicapped.

    UNIQUE for handguns and 4895 for rifles they dont compete but they cover everthing between them.

    Life would be harder without Unique . Once it's stabilized in the measure , Uniflow or Dillon , it works just fine for anything I've put it to .

    Buy it cheap and stack it deep , you may need it !

    I just got a couple of jugs of BR-5, it is supposed to be a ball powder replacement of Unique. It sings in 9mm and .45 ACP. 7 grs of it in a 30-30 with a 150 gr. bullet is sheer range fun.

    I use mostly Bullseye, it works very well with my hand guns 45 Auto and my 9mm
