I've got a bit more than half a pound each of HP38 and Universal that I'm working on using up loading my wheelgun calibers, .38spl, .357mag, .44spl, .44mag., and .45 Colt...The powder's over 15 years old and still works like a daisy, the thing is, someday I will have to buy new powder. I don't really have any complaints with the Hodgdon, it is a bit dirty, but other than that seems to work in my applications. Is there a cleaner burning powder from some manufacturer out there with the same versatility as HP38 and Universal? Funds are limited, so I'm trying to stick with the most versatility within a powders uses to get adequate performance from all or nearly all of my firearms without buying 3 or 4 specialty powders.
Thanks for any suggestions.
