  1. Titegroup does work well, but it is a little louder than some and have a sharper recoil  It can also be used for a 12 gauge load.

    "I was looking at the Hodgon load data website and they have loads listed using Titegroup powder, This peeked my interest as I have lots of it on hand for pistol calibers I load for. the lightest load I see they have listed is for one ounce. My question is would it be okay to use this data for a Lee 7/8 oz slug.Or would anyone know of a source of load data for 7/8 oz loads.The loads listed below are starting and middle of the road so I assume I would be ok.

    Unique is a little dirtier but is also a great powder for both.


    Clays is a great option for 12 gauge and can be used for the 9mm.  But since it is a little fast for the 9mm, you will have to load near max for a reliable load.  My only concern is that if the pistol is new it sometimes wants a higher velocity load to break them in.  But i have shot a lot of Clyays in 9mm and it has worked well in nearly all my pistols.

      Thanks, Marauder!  That's all great information.  I appreciate it.



  2. So keep Joe Biden away from you, huh?
  3. Here's a good one, if El Cubano doesn't beat you to it:
  4. It's not really a safe, OLG. It's just an old fridge that I keep out in the garage with a bucket of DampRid to keep the humidity down. Keeps the gunpowder away from the dogs. You know how evil they get after eating gunpowder.
  5. I just didn't want to buy a pound of one powder for 9mm, which I'll probably never reload again after the training session with my son-in-law, just to see it sit in the safe.
  6. Keep me in mind for holsters as well, Lawdawg, after Mr. Leadbetter gets his pick. I have 5-1/2" Taurus Gauchos that need new clothes.
  7. That's what I'm looking to do, GJ. I primarily want a powder that will work well for light 12 gauge loads, but will at least cycle the 9mm. We'll probably only load about 100 9mm to shoot in my G19, so the rest of the powder will be left over for SG loads.
  8. You ain't plannin' on huggin' me next time are you? Where's my stick?
  9. Thanks OLG. How does the Blue Dot do for light shotgun loads for SASS?
  10. In about a month, my future son-in-law will be visiting from AZ, and he loves to go shooting. He recently bought a new CZ in 9mm and loves it. I thought that I would surprise him on his visit by giving him my Lee single stage press with all the dies and goodies necessary to load 9mm. I'm using Trail Boss for my .45CS and .44-40, but that probably isn't a good choice for the 9mm crowd. What would be a good powder choice for loading 9mm that would also be a good choice for shotgun? The reason that I'm mixing the two is that he is flying here and won't be able to take the powder back with him, so I need a powder that will suite my 12 gauge shotgun needs as well. Thanks y'all,
  11. ^ Ditto. Can't beat Waimea for good bullets.
