Another titegroup user here. A little really does go a long way, and it's accurate in my Rock Island.

I like Red Dot, and use a lot of it because a friend gave me 12 pounds of it. HP38/231 is good, too, and of course Bullseye was the original .45ACP powder.

Experience is a series of non-fatal mistakes


Disarming is a mistake free people only get to make once...

Bullseye was not the original powder for .45acp.
WW231 was developed by Winchester/Olin for this round.
Info about the original makers of Bullseye and Unique.

The "classic" target load for conventional Bullseye match shooting is 4.0 grains of Bullseye powder behind a 200 grain LSWC.
I use 4.5 grains behind a 185 grain Plated or JHP.
Quite a few shooters rely on W231 and quite another few have switched to the VV powders.

Where did you read Unique isn't made any longer? Why would you want to use one of the dirtiest powders available in a semi auto pistol?
