If you have any of those powders with a bit of experimenting you can find an acceptably accurate load with cast bullets and a decent rifle. As far as favorites here are mine for the 30-06 and can be basicly used in most milsurp size cases.
Light plinker 100 yd loads.150-185 gr cast bullets Vel.1100 fps + or -
6 grs of bullseye
7.5 gr W231
10 gr Unique
Medium speed loads 1500-1700 fps range
14-15 grs of Unique (deadly accurate in several of my rifles)
16-20 grs 2400
20 gr 5744 or 4759 or 4227
28-30 grs 4895
25 grs 3031 or 2015
Hope that helps ,Tim
