My .44 powder is Unique/Universal. I use them interchangeably. Universal is a good medium power powder just like Unique. Works well in other calibers too, but I have other favorites that I have been using for .45 Colt, .45 ACP, and .357 .

I was surprised at how similar the results were.
Yep.

Here is a 'sample' for .44Mag (6 1/2" barrel) from my records

7.5g Unique, 240g SWC, 956fps
7.5g Universal,240g SWC, 946fps

8.0g Unique, 240g SWC, 998fps
8.0g Universal,240g SWC, 1001fps

8.5g Unique, 240g SWC, 1053fps
8.5g Universal,240g SWC, 1056fps


You'll find similar results in other calibers.

Here is .357 (6 1/2" barrel) for example

6.0g Unique, 158g SWC, 1082fps
6.0g Universal, 158g SWC, 1096fps
