I use the first four manufacturers listed but I'm guessing that I have more Hodgdon than the rest. Their customer service won me over long ago.

Mainly use ADI, with a can each of W-296 and RedDot.
No favorite, just use whatever I could get my hands to and wasn't too costly.
I vary the loads till I get a good result.

IMR 4198 for the .222

Imr because Ive got it in the cupboard and ADI because that seems to be all my local gunshop seems to have on hand.

Mainly ADI powders (AR2208 Varget) and looking at Alliant (Promo). Also use a Spanish powder (PSB1) for my 32 gram and up 12g loads.

Cheers, Vince

I use IMR and Hodgdon for almost all rifle loads, Winchester for pistol, and Alliant for Shotgun. I voted IMR just because I seem to go through it the fastest!

I voted accurate because their 1680 (old ww680) is without equal for the cartridges that use it.

I use Hodgdon for everything. I used to use WW296 until I found out it is identical (same powder by a different name) to H110. Now I use Hodgdon for all my loading.

Depends on what I am loading for! Picked up some RAMSHOT TAC for dad's AR. It really likes that powder with A-Max's!!! Other wise I use alot of Hodgdon. My .25-06'Rem seems to really like the H414. And dad's .22-250Rem seems to like H380! The .270Win will usually get a H4320 or H4350. The rest well it just depends! For handguns..well heck that goes to Hodgdon as well mostly. Alot fo HS6 gets used by me.
