    Granted pickins are slim..what's your favorite powder for 9mm?

    This seems to be the last thing I need to get some ammo cans full. I'm not looking to try to be a sniper with my Sig...but would like "quality factory load" type if not a bit better.

    Alliant BE86.
    For factory type loads you could load pretty much any pistol caliber with that one powder.

    I used Bullseye for a long time. It works but the small amount of powder in the case means that it's easy to double charge or no-charge a case. Same with Titegroup.
    I recently tried BE-86 and am very happy with it. Good case filling, flash suppressed and so far it works well with 124 grain Hi Tek coated bullets.

    I haven't been loading pistol long but was recommended Bullseye. I like it because 4gr fills a 9mm case almost half full. A double charge is easy to see. I also don't like having 10 powders. I load my son's 38spc way below minimum with bullseye. If I did have a double charge I doubt it would hurt the gun. It's pretty easy to find in 4# and 8# around town and online. 20200630_210115.jpg

    After loading 100K+ rounds of 9mm with TiteGroup, I’ve recently made the move to Sport Pistol. I initially did it to use with coated bullets, but moved to using it with my usual JHP load also. Cooler burning than TiteGroup, very similar burn rate, a bit less smoky with JHP, a lot less smoke with coated.
