Are you looking to buy those powders to use them in those guns or do you have those powder and are trying to figure out what to use them in?

IMR 4064 is my go to rifle powder. I've used it for: .223,.22-250,.243,.270,
7mm08,7mm Mag.,.30-30,.30-06,.308,.300 Mag. and it has worked well for them all.

In the order you posted:

Magnum pistol rounds
Standard rifle calibers(243, 308, 30-06, etc.)
30-30
magnum pistol rounds
heavy slug for caliber rifle rounds(i.e. 30-06 @ 165 or heavier)
Just about any non-magnum centerfire rifle caliber

From the list I only use IMR 4227 in 30 cal carbine. Works excellant.

Thing I like about it is you can't double charge.

I use Varget for my 22-250 with great results. Beware though, it meter's horribly and each round should be individually weighed. IMO...
