Need a little expert help.....

I have been reloading for some time now in bits and pieces, mostly my wildcat carts and 45LC and 44mag , mostly, and some various med rifle. My help needed is this....
Almost all the powder i use is 1 lb cans of H110 , H335 , 2400 and 3031...Have not tried other newer powders, just stick with the same old..
I'm considering buying a large amount of powder, for rifle and one for large caliber pistol...
Is there a suggestion of 2 or maybe 3 powders that will take care of most of my needs, as it will be hanging around for several years...
Thanks much !!

You didn't mention what your rifle calibers are, but I;ve been working down a purchase from Jeff Bartlett at for a few years now. I got some pulldowns that load like H110 (works well in all the mag pistols as well as 30 Carbine), H380 (works well in 308 and 243, probably OK in a lot of others as well). If you are going to load with commercial powder, people really like Varget for its versitility. For non-mag pistols, I really like VihtaVuori N350 ... great in everything from 32acp to 45acp.

You need to post a FULL list of the calibers that you'll be reloading.

Only after we know that can we make educated suggestions.

I'm sure i'll miss a few.....

But here goes..
In handgun, calibers : 357 mag, 45LC, 44mag, 445 Supermag, 454 Casull, 45-70, 475 Wildey, and soon 500 S & W......

In rifle: 30-30, 307 win, 356 win, 375 win, 35 Rem, 30-06, 7mm mag, 338 mag, 358 mag, 300 Wby, 44 mag, 444 Marlin, 45-70, .....Soon 264 mag

That should cover it....have dies for every caliber that i have, but don't reload many just because i don't shoot very often or at all.
Hope this will help you help me...
