Results are presented which detail the performance of proportional counters when filled with a wide variety of argon- and xenon-based gas mixtures. It is shown that alternative gas mixtures can offer considerable advantages in the counters. The mixtures of argon plus 10 percent propane and xenon plus 10 percent propylene look particularly attractive in terms of operating voltage and energy resolution. The quench gas CO2 returns the poorest results in all areas except aging.
