    I can recommend using Unique for those plinking loads.
    10.5gr is the sweet spot for my gun, consitent right at 1200fps, but you can go up to 17gr or so.

    Some great info, much appreciated!
    I think I'm going to forego hunting with it until I pick up some different projectiles and play with the loads a little more.
    It's a ton of fun to shoot regardless!

    17 gr. of Unique with the 250 gr. Campro bullets? Say what now?

    No. That was in response to Crazy Horse's 444 Marlin comment.

    Not sure how it would handle high pressure 45 Colt loads. You can probably lean on the loads a bit but they don’t chamber that rifle in 44=mag which may indicate it’s not as strong as some other designs. Sorry I can’t help much I use TB for light loads and Lil Gun for high octane loads. Never tried Unique in 45 Colt.
