I notice that many of the lead bullet loads for the straight-wall revolver cases are pretty close between Universal Clays and Titegroup. Is there any advantage to using one over the other? I usually load medium velocity cast bullet loads in .38 special, 9mm, .44 special and .45 Colt.I keep my .357 and .44 magnum loads around 1,000 fps. Both powders seem quite well suited to this, so that is why I am wondering about how they compare. I am looking for clean burning as well as good performance within the velocity ranges.

Just to make things interesting, how does Ramshot True Blue rate against Universal Clays and TiteGroup?

Thanks. I realize this is pretty picky, but that's half the fun of it.

I've heard good things about tightgroup but I got into Universal and have been useing it for most handgun loads. I go with 296 for heavy 357 & 44 loads.

I used to use Alliant Blue Dot for my heavy magnum revolver loads, but I found it to be quite temperature sensitive with point of impact at 100 yards varying about 8" from 35 degrees to 85 degrees. So, I switched to 296. Currently I have backed off my magnum loads because I shoot only cast bullets and have been using Power Pistol. Nice stuff. The nice thing about PP is that you can reduce the loads somewhat without worries about pressure. Just a random comment.
