Here's a link to the latest discussions going on right now. Most people will tell you that the best salt is the salt that works for you.

Indeed, and try to make it a habit to test at least the first few mixes of each bucket (bag, whatever) for alk, calcium, etc....even the most consistent salt mixes can and will have bad batches from time to time that slip through quality control.
