Need more info to answer your question. As your paint job progresses you could use all of them at one time or another, it depends on how far you have gotten and what you plan to use for paint.

liquid larry,howdy!the technique ive been using is as follows :p rime,block with 220,reprime as necessary,block lightly with 220,400,600,wipe with prepsall,tack rag then paint.aperson idont know told me that 600 was too fine too use before paint and that the paint wouldnt adhere good.so, instead of accepting that as gospel im seeking others advice.thanks guy!jimmoh yeah, im using centari[single stage ]and i plan on color sanding [1200 ?]

I paint and body for a living with any single stage I usually finnish with 320 the paint gets a good bite and enamels are made to flow so if you do a good sand job the finish will be good now if I do a base/clear I will wet sand with 800 to 1000 grit before basing and make sure the surface is flawless because anything left will be amplified by the clearcoat and you won't nessesarily see it in the base
