You and your guns will dictate that answer for you. Also, are you a find a load and stick with it guy, or do you constantly try new things? If you only have one rifle of said caliber and have a load that shoots great out of it, and don't plan on messing with it, why have five powders just for that rifle/caliber setup? But if you change bullets (weights or brands) a lot, you may need several powders for that setup. Just like the art of reloading itself, this question has many variables. It depends on the type of reloader you are really. Make any sense?
How many different powders, and what type should I keep on hand.

I have a jug of IMR 4350, But I don't see any charts with 65 gr bt. but when I look up heaver grain bullets, they come up. using IMR 4350Tom
For 243 Win, 30-06 and 7mm Rem mag IMR 4350 may be the only powder you need.

The 30-06 bullet was a Sierra Game King 165 gr. with 55 grains of IMR 4350 and a CCI primer. I shot it out of a Remington 742 woodsmaster. My 243 shot ok, but like I said, I was not relaxed (Stress) I was shooting 65 grain Midway BT, with (corected)37.5 gr of H335 and a cci primer.and run through a Hawa 1500 1-10 twist My 22 that my grandson has been shooting at 50 yards was very low at 100 yards.The scope wouldn't adjust any farther up, so I took it home and replaced it with a Tasco scope, (I know) but it's a 22. Then I went back out to Grant's place and met him out in the field, and sited in the 22 again.I am happy with that now, it could use a little more tuning, but shoots pretty good groups. I actually like the Tasco scope better than the one that was on it. There was a fuzzy can running back and forth behind the target distracting me,so I used Grant's Tika, 223 and fwaped it good, no more distraction.Tom
Penalty! You can't make a statement like that and not tell us what caliber/bullet combo. Did you also take a known decent shooting load (reload or factory) with you to compare. Always a must to see if it is the human factor or the new load.
