I use "Unique" as well.
Wheelweights to cast bullets.
As far as specific loads, it is very dependent on the particular gun and bullet size and hardness, that you have to work your own figures.

I load 6.5 grains of HS6 with a 158 grain LSWC or LRN for IDPA and general target shooting. Its accurate and runs in the 850-875 fps range out of my 4" 681, making IDPA power factor without a problem.
