    For lighter bullets, Unique, 231 & #5 have all been good in my experience. All put enough volume in the case, but #5 seems to burn slightly cleaner to me, although it is somewhat load dependent. For 147 gr., though, I really prefer WSF.

    I have been using 4.8 grains of HP-38 in my 9mm loads and so far I am pleased with the results.

    I prefer Unique or titegroup, I liked the accuracy of bullseye, however it was quite dirty in my experience.

    Regards,

    I load hard cast bullets almost exclusively. In the 9, I have just recently switched to a hard cast 147 grain flat nose from the 125 grain hard cast flat nose I had been using. I put a light coat of liquid alox on my commercial cast bullets.

    In my experience, Accurate #2 mid range loads were accurate, more so than #5. I have just started to use Power Pistol with the 147 grain bullet. The Lyman starting load for Power Pistol with this bullet is 4.1 grains, so this was my first and so far only load with it. I don't have a chronograph, but Lyman lists this load as 939 fps. It is the most accurate load I have ever shot from my Smith M&P, and is a soft recoiling round, more of a push feel, versus being snappy. I highly recommend this powder and load for anyone to try, understanding that this load is very accurate in my pistol, YMMV.

    It fills the case, no chance for a double charge, but I always double check anyway. One of my rules of handloading, not just for double charges, but also for no charges.

    I am going to update my opinion on this one...I have had better luck with velocity and cleaner
    loads with AA#7 than all others. My new favorite.

    I use tite group for my 9mm loads with good results. Thought about using other powders but tite group is reasonably priced.

    I've always used Unique or Bullseye, but I'm giving Power Pistol a try now.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Blue Dot. Works good and you can not double charge.

    I use W231. Loading 115 XTP usually fills case about 1/2 way, I charge usually 4.6-4.8 works well for me.

    I know this is an old thread, I have 8 lbs of Bullseye to use up! Its dirty stuff. I will switch over to Titegroup once its gone some year. The 231 is good also.
