    I like PP and hs-6 us them alot in my 40s, as of late I tried some clays universal and have had great results.

    I was reading up before loading and came across this thread. Why don't you like Longshot with lead?

    HS-6 is one of my favorites but I couldn't find any so now I have 3 lbs of Longshot. I shoot a lot of 115gr FMJ and MBC 147s. Going to try it out today.

    I am happy to see others also recommend SR4756. It is one of the unsung hero's out there of the powder world.

    As a fall back Power Pistol would work but it is flashy compared to 4756.

    Longshot seems to burn very hot, hotter than I like with lead bullets. Also, accuracy in the .38 Special +P isn't as good as with HS-6.
