    accurate #7 would be a great start if both are on the menu.

    I use win231 and hp38 for everything from 380 to 45 colt. They are the same powder. They work verywell in the 9mm the 40cal and the 45 acp.

    I have used Unique for years with both for years with good success.

    I like HP38 too, similar to Unique in speed but it flows better through my powder measure. Power Pistol is my other favorite for those days when you just need to make lots of noise.

    I use unique and power pistol as well but prefer hp38. Since the shortage thing going on I have used some other powder that I was able to come across. Titegroup and true blue seem to be good as well.

    shhh... don't tell them about true blue...
    actually all the powders listed so far are good to great depending on what you want them to do. For full throttle heavy bullet pushing in the 9mm #7 is hard to beat. I had a ruger 9 mm years ago I could actually make major with using #7 and a 147 grain cast pill. I wouldn't feed it to a baretta so I won't list the load, but it was a book load and the ruger shot like a champ with it. I've noticed the accurate data to be a bit milder lately; probably for the open top frames out there in 9mm.
