Anyone use unique? I'm finding conflicting info between the layman man. And alliant data. Anybody have any recipes?

You didn't say what bullet you would be using, but, I got excellent accuracy with 155 Gr. lead RN and 165 Gr. lead FP and Unique. 6.0 Unique with 155 gr.
and 5.6 UNIQUE - 165 GR. LFP Penn cast both loads 1.35 OAL

Your not allowed to talk about conflicting data and Unique. Unique is perfect.

I load 6.2gr. of Unique under a Zero 180gr. FMJ bullet loaded to 1.128" col. Also 5.1gr. under 180gr. cast TC.
Both give good accuracy. Alliant website shows 6.7 gr. of Unique as a maximun load with a 180gr. Speer Gold Dot.

5.4 Unique with a 180 cast bullet shoots great, is a good dupe for factory ammo, and is well below the max giving a bit of peace of mind.

My practice load is a 175grLRNFP o/ 5.4gr as well, extremely accurate in several guns. I also like 5.5gr under a 165gr plated. Either will go under 1 1/2" @ 50ft from my service pistols.

I loaded some at 5.7. I'll see how if feels tomorrow. So far I like power pistol and titegroup. This will be my first with unique.

I'm at 5.8 gr behind a 180 PD FMJ at 1.125.
Coming out at 1000 FPS.

I can't imagine doing 6.7 gr.

I've done some testing at 6.0 coming out at 1025.

What??? 1000 fps at 5.7!!! Good thing I didn't start at 6.2.

Tula primers,
mixed brass
5.7, 977 FPS
5.8, 988 FPS
5.9, 1019 FPS
6.0, 1024 FPS

I settled at 5.8 because thats what Federal 180 gr. ball from walmart comes in at and I wanted a lil safety margin for shorter OAL's, unknown firings on brass, and i'm running them through a glock.

I think there is a Unique Users thread or something around here somewhere. You might find several loads there.

It probably should be a sticky as we have so many brilliant reloaders here with good taste in powders.

Ok, mine are loaded to 1.128. Will test in 22 and 35.

you will probably get higher velocities than mine due to your bbl length.
Not a huge amount though.

You know, Fred, I know you know what you're talking about, but sometimes I think there's scotch involved. That, or you suck at typing. :tongueout:

I just bought a 24, and I am going to try out a few MG 180gr FMJ with Unique.
