For the OP, Kester PN:"KS4462-21" SN62/PB36/AG02(2% silver). It's my absolute favorite to work with on most electronics. Unfortunately, it's expensive.
Wow, that stuff is expensive. Are you soldering silver/silver plated components?

I mostly just solder bullets for motors or battery ends. I have had good luck with the Radio Shack stuff, so I was looking for something similar. I didn't realize there where so many choices for solder. I think this is the stuff I have been using, but I thought it said silver somewhere. I will double check when I get home.

My new question is, what should I be using?

Find a local electronics supply store in your neighborhood and buy some rosin core 63/37 solder, a small bottle of liquid flux, and a flux dispensing bottle and be done with it. In the unlikely event they don't have 63/37 solder then 60/40 is the next best option.

You don't need silver solder and you don't want lead-free solder.

If you do any lead free soldering, do not exceed 700F on your iron and keep it clean using one of the brillo pad looking cleaners. Do not use a wet sponge.

If you don't follow these guidelines, it will ruin your tip very quickly.
