    I use it for my 10mm loads and I was happy the way it to perform with my 180 to 200 grain rounds.

    Darn good powder. You may want to also check out Hodgdon CFE (if you can find it).

    Good stuff for heavy bullets in the 9mm.

    Since you mentioned CFE, are you thinking about Accurate #7, or Reloader #7? These are two powders that should not be mistaken for one another. One is for pistol, and the other for rifle. Some spectacular KaBooms have resulted from mistakes. Be sure of what you have, and what your Data says.

    Load/Shoot safe.

    I like AA#7 for 10mm and 357SIG. They are good for warm, not nuke loads. Apparently it's also good for high velocity 9mm loads, but I prefer #5 for 9mm range ammo.

    My choice for range ammo is #2. I really prefer it over bullseye.

    Accurate has always burned dirty in my pistols, so I no longer use it. I still have some, so I may try it again as I have changed calibers since my initial experience.

    It is dirty. AA7 and 9 both leave yellow specs in my guns. Given the choice, I'd much prefer Longshot. It's a great replacement for AA#7.

    I like AA#7's performance a lot. Like any slower powder it takes a bit more, so is a tad less economical. Meters great, so I use it for making larger lots of 9mm and .40 S&W. I like it in .45 auto also.

    Alliant Power Pistol is a really clean burning powder.

    If you don't like dirty, stay away from CFE. That stuff creates a swampy, sticky mess in your gun.

    I tried it a few years back but the cost VS bullseye was what turned me off. Otherwise I didn't have any problems with it.
