Well I just kind of backed into an 8 pounder of Unique and an 8 pounder of W296 . The Unique will be used in the 10 and 16 gauge guns . The 296 should keep my 410's going for ten or so years !!!!!

I may get an additional 8 pounder of both as my friend has four 8 pounders of both . Another mutual friend wants a couple of each as well . Don't think I'd ever use 16 pounds of 296 but if I have it on hand I sure don't need to worry about finding it . Might lay in some Magnum grade shot as he also has about a ton of #8 and #9 .

Ended up getting two eights of Unique an eight of 296 and five bags of shot from my friend Friday . Today I was at the Virginia Hunting Show in Richmond and slid by one of the local shops and got a fiver of Blue Dot !

Someone gave me a pound of rather old Red Dot a couple days ago . I loaded a couple 10 gauge 2 7/8” 1 1/4 ounce loads with 20.2 grains and they worked okay . I had been thinking I wanted some Green Dot now I think I want some Red Dot as well . Perhaps two eight pounders of each . Five pounders of RL-15 , RL-17 and RL-19 . And an 8 of IMR4831 . I suppose I should lay i a couple more pounds of US-869 as well .

Red Dot and Green Dot kinda have my interest at the moment . The Green should cover a fair amount of applications . And a guy on the Parker forum is getting some decent very light short 10 gauge loads that interest me .

I'm wondering how close the new IMR powders are gonna be to the old Dot powders.

IMR powders are the old DuPont powders . All theDot powders are Alliant powders IE the old Hercules powders .

Correct. 2017, IMR is bringing out 5 new powders called Red, Green, Blue, Unequal and Target, and I have a hunch they are gonna be very close to Red Dot, Green Dot, Blue Dot, Unique and Bullseye.

I suspect the new powders of which you speak or more then likely to replace the three SR powders and the PB powder they discontinued a year or so ago . Although the W572 I was told is supposed to be fairly similar to SR7625 .

That's very possible. I always have liked SR4756 quite well.

Congratulations . The Unique is my all time favorite powder. There just ain't much you can't do with it and it has been hard to come by so it is a real score in my opinion .
