    I have always been worried about forgetting what type or brand of powder I have left in the hopper from my last reloading session (which might have been 6 months ago). I have worked it to where I can reload Everything with 1 powder, Hodgdon Clays. I load 12ga and 16ga shotshells, 12g slugs, .380, .38, .357, .45acp. Just have to check the drop rate and adjust for each load.

    So far, only using Win 231 for handgun and Varget for rifle. Going to try some IMR 4895 for the rifle, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Use AA2700 in .284 & .30 cals with Ramshot TAC or X-terminator pushing pills in mild .223 thru hot 5.56 high-pressure rounds. BL-C2 is also useful, but I just ran the 8# jug dry last week.

    For handguns, ZIP or one of the "DOT" powders.
