Default versatile Green Dot

Last several times in BassPro (Manteca) they had green dot in stock.

Here is what I use from an old late 1970's Hercules booklet (they make GreenDot, now called Alliant Green Dot).

I have Herco on order, but Green Dot is versatile too...

So is red dot.
For a long time I've used it in nearly everything.

I really like AA #5 also. With all this powder craziness it's really helpful to have a powder that's versatile. Sometimes you gotta overlook another 50fps and consider functionality and versatility.

They're not liberals, they're leftists. Please don't use the former for the latter. Liberals are Locke, Jefferson, Burke, Hayek. Leftists are progressives, Prussian state-socialists, fascists. Liberals stand against the state and unequivocally support liberty. Leftists support state tyranny.

I think it was Fishslayer that turned me on to Green Dot for 45 Auto loads. I use GD in many mid-range shot shell loads, so it is nice to have it as a backup 45 powder as well, very versatile.
