I was leaning toward Power Pistol but I'm going to give HP38 a try also. If I can find either right now. Thanks for the replies.

I use Silhouette almost exclusively in the ACP, Ramshot also lists load for that powder in the 9mm but I don't load for that....yet .

Re: 9mm & 45ACP Powder

I'm using Tightgroup with my 115gr plated bullets, and Longshot with my 147gr jacketed bullets. With the 115gr plated bullets loaded to cast specs, I'm able to keep my POI and vel very close to the 147gr load, makes for a good economical practice load, that both shoots and feels much like the 147gr I carry with.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Unique is o.k....a bit dirty.

Titegroup is what I've been running lately. You get a lot of mileage out of it. It could double charge so make sure you have a way of ensuring a single charge.
