    Look at wst instead of 231. It burns cleaner

    HS-6 and Power Pistol. They both meter well, and provide excellent high-end performance. However, PP does create a much louder report.

    I've used a lot of Unique for .38 Special/.357 Magnum loads, but, even though it is quite versatile, it never metered well for me.

    I loaded up some test rounds yesterday. My first in 9mm. I loaded WSF, HP38(231), and WST. WST and HP38 were really filled the case and were easier to see as they are a lighter color than WSF. The WSF is a ball powser vs flake, so it didn't fill as full and was darker. Hopefully today or tomorrow we'll see how they fly.

    How much WST are you dropping, and for what bullet?

    Smile I've tried a lot of them

    and settled on AA#5. Unique is great, but drives me to distraction with metering. lots of good ones but AA#5 just says yes to me. meters sooooo consistently, 1,000 rds per pound, accurate and reasonably clean.

    Unique for almost all my handgun loadings.

    I started with Green Dot (good results but seems to be very dirty) but have moved to Unique and I am very pleased.

    I use Bullseye or Unique for most of my pistol loads, though I do also load 700x in 44mags and in .357s. Next time I am around a shop that carries W231 I am going to pick up a keg of that , it looks like an interesting powder. I have never even opened my tite group or power pistol.... perhaps I eventually will.

    I wanted to go back and revise the info on Titegroup. Yes, it is possible for me to double-charge the 3.4--3.5gr of Titegroup I throw, but that puts the powder so close to the top of the case I don't think you could actually seat a bullet on top of it.

    Furthermore, I load real bunny-fart loads for IDPA, 147gr bullet running not much more than 850fps. If I wanted to load closer to 1,000fps, I don't think a double-charge would be physically possible at that point.

    Lots of great choices for 9mm. I like WSF, HS6, and #5 the most. #7 will work as will Power Pistol. I don't care for anything else.

    My personal loads all use WSF. It is wonderful with lead and jacketed. If you still have your Kimber 9mm, WSF is very lead friendly. Use the standard 125gr LRN with WSF and you're in business.

    Depending on the size and type of bullet, I use WST and Titegroup most of the time. WST is clean and soft shooting and doesn't "stain" the brass like Titegroup. I do, however, stay in the middle of the load range because I am using for target shooting.

    I used to use Unique, tried 700x, and have decided on Titegroup for range use in all the calibers I shoot.

    I always used Herco for hot 9x19 loads "way back when," and it's still good. Other than Herco, I've probably loaded more 9mm rounds with AA#7 than any other. Keep in mind, however, I only load 9x19 HOT, never at low or moderate velocities, and that keeps these sometimes-dirty powders shooting clean. I've used some AA#5, and it's okay, but is a little faster powder than I like for 9mm. If you want more moderate level loads, #5 is good. I also like Viht 3N37 for hot 9mm loads.
