    which powder for 9mm

    Previously when I reloaded I used bullseye powder for reloading 9mm. I don't plan on using that one again (not terrible but had some problems with it).
    I am looking for a relatively clean burning accurate powder for 9mm. perferably one that will fill the case correctly (to avoid double loads)
    Also something that isnt stupidly expensive of course.
    Anyone use pistol powder from allient? I'm not really leaning toward this one but I thought I would ask.
    What about the accurate powders? No 2? No 5? No 7?
    Which of these fits my needs the best.

    If you really suggest a different brand please also let me know

    Hodgdon's Titegroup
    Clean, position insensitive (not that critical in 9mm), measures well, as reasonably priced as anything. I use it in 9mm,38spc, 357mag,45acp, 44mag. Works from low pressure plinking right up to near full pop mag stuff. Gets my vote almost always. Used to use WW231, its fine too, but Titegroup is happier at low volume/big case, so I switched.

    +1 on Titegroup. I load 9mm and 40 cal with it and never had problems. Shoots clean

    I use titegroup, too. There are others. Unique, WSF, 231, longshot, etc. TG is fairly cheap per round.

    I like the balance of performance to apparent pressures that Unique affords. It also functions my Luger. Unique is pleasingly clean burning in semi-autos when used in near max loads and with jacketed bullets.

    While not a traditional 9mm powder WST works wonders.

    If you are very concerned about filling the case; avoiding double charge, Red Dot has given me excellent results. Both very accurate, and very mild.

    The cleanest powder I've used, and my favorite in 9mm is WSF. It is a fine ball, and meters spot on.

    Unique is a case-filling powder for 9mm, as well.

    If you are worried about double charging then turn off the cell phone and lock the door. Double charging starts with distraction.

    I use both AA#2 and AA#5 and find them accurate and clean. They also meter & dip well.

    I use and like Titegroup, too, but it won't fill a case. That hasn't bothered me, though; just keep eyes on the powder station after you run each cartridge.
