F205's mostly since they always go bang in my 454 Redhawk shooting DA. Rem 7.5's or F205's in FA loads. Hornady load data uses F205's, FA data Rem 7.5's. I've also got some loads for my 454 levergun with CCI450's. Come to think of it. I use CCI 400's for Unique plinker loads.

Great thread and very relevant for me right now. Thanks! I would add that Barnes uses Federal 205 in their published loads and list h110 as the most accurate. I did find that magnum primers worked better in my 45-70 loads with RL7.

I use the CCI 450's in all of my Casull loads. Had issues with ignition and squibs with the regular small rifle primers. Have never had any issues since I switched to the CCI 450's.
