Unique Inconsistency


Recommended Posts

I currently use Bullseye, HS-6 and Unique for reloading 38 specials with a Dillon 550B press. Once I set the powder charge Bullseye and HS-6 seem very consistent. The Unique on the otherhand seems to vary. I see a variation as high as .2 grains up or down. I have checked the weight every 25 rounds and very seldom see the same numbers.

Is there something I should be cleaning on the Dillon so Unique levels out or is this normal?

I like Unique to reach required pf for IDPA but would be interested if there is a similar powder which charges with a more consistent amount.

If you are using jacketed bullets Power Pistol will be just the ticket, meters great through the Dillon measure.

Unique is still my choice for lead bullets even though I have a .2 total variation using it. I rarely see more than a tenth variation but occasionally I will see a little more. I also don't see the variation on the chrono, the ammo is pretty darn consistent, so I don't worry about a little variation.
