The old unique used to make a real mess. I don't find the new unique as bad as bullseye. Unique and bullseye is about all I am loading in handgun stuff. I shoot a 125gr LRN bullet on top. I have shot a standard unique load to 200 yards from my 995. I would very much like to retry that test with some 147gr bullets.unique, bullseye, bluedot, and gah theres another, maybe longshot are some of the best for carbine loads. I use unique, its dirty as hell but its all good.
