    Red Dot for normal loads (4.0 grains), Bullseye (5.3 gn) or 231 (5.5 gn) for +P's. I haven't actually used the 231 data yet, but I have shot both the Red Dot and Bullseye loads in a 4".

    Why the "thumbs down"?

    HP38 by Hodgdon is good snubby powder.

    I like Unique. It's fast enough to be good in short barrels but is versatile enough for (light loads) in magnum calibers. I even use it for shotgun reloads.
