    I have a pound jug I bought for a customer who decided they didn't want it after all. Did some quick looking around and it seems to be popular in FAST 9mm and such. Just curious if anyone here uses it and for what? It looks like a decent powder for my .357 SIG.

    I use it in 9mm and like it. It feels very snappy even at slightly lower pressures. Charges are larger than most like unique or power pistol.

    I know some guys who use it for 9mm major loads for USPSA competition. Can get some serious velocities with this powder.

    It's good for USPSA Major power factor 38 super/supercomp loads. It's the discontinued WW540 under a different name.

    Yep, popular in 9mm Major.

    Can also be used in the People's Kaliber of 40S&W, and milder 10mm loads.

    I'll have to give that a whirl. Ive only been using H110 and CFE pistol. I just don't have a use for the stuff much since I don't shoot competitively

    I use it for my USPSA 9mm major power factor ammo. 1500fps 115gr 9mm!! It takes around 9.2 grains to get them that fast. I wouldn't recommend this load for guns that aren't setup for such powerful ammo... Granted my OAL is too long to fit in a glock clipazine. Pew pew[mg][mg]

    I also put together some hot 44 magnum loads with it for the DE

    I've used it for .357 mag and 9mm. Works fine.
