Is there a powder that does well with both rounds and meters well from a RCBS Uniflow?

Any ball, spherical, flake or small extruded powder will work well. There's about 100 of them in the burn rate you need. Look at a reloading manual to see what powders will work for you with the bullet you are shooting, then go to the mfg website to see what kind of powder it is.

Was gonna say Varget till you said you wanted it to meter well...

The powder performs super consistently, though.

H335 will excel in both rounds and meters beautifully.

Varget. Through mine it will throw +/- two 10th's typically. I set it a little low and trickle up to desired load, but I'm never in a hurry and don't mind the time taken for this.

What others have said. Varget or H335. H335 meters better. Other options are out there, of course.
