HS-7 of course. I hear people have trouble finding it though. I'd think something on the slower end of acceptable powders would be your best bet for the heavier stuff. Maybe True Blue.

I would say that True Blue is the best all around powder period for the weight you are looking at. Especially since HS7 was discontinued. Hodgdon Longshot works about as good as True Blue as a second good choice.
