I found a supply of American Select for a price I couldn't pass. I decided to try it with 200 gr LSWC in a .45 ACP load. Wow, I'm impressed. This may be my favorite Alliant powder yet. Normally I use Clays, titegroup, or 231 for economy/plinking .45 ACP loads. Right away I noticed that Amer Sel has less smoke (than clays for instance), and burns very clean (much cleaner than 231). It also proved quite accurate with the 200 gr LSWC in my RIA. I've never shot groups with other powders using that bullet that came close to the ones I shot with the Amer Sel loads. Anytime I come up with a load that can shoot a group under 2" at 15 yards (in my hands), It gets my attention. I may have to get another can of Amer Sel if they still have it cheap. Even if the price has gone up, its now high on my list.
