    Do you have a reloading manual? Don't meant to sound terse here but you should pick a powder that seems to fit your needs and try it. There is no elses' load or powder that is guaranteed right or safe for your gun. You must always work up your own loads. One tip I can give you is to pick the powder that develops the velocity you want at the lowest pressures. If you don't have a manual, try Hodgdon.com. ~Muir
