I have also had great results with titegroup. I am not very experienced in reloading yet but seems to be working ok and clean.

Awesome guys, I knew I could count on good responses.

I'll give Clays a try since I have it in stock and see how it goes.

Thanks

Once again, thanks for the quick responses to my powder questions/problem.

Over the weekend, I sat down in front of my Rock Chucker and did 25 rounds with the Clays that I had in stock. Yesterday I went to the range and put 10 through the P239 and 15 through the P226, flawless operation and the clean that I love in my 12 ga Red Label!

Now that I know the round works for me, I'll set up my Dillon Square Deal and have at it.

Problem solved, that's why I love this forum; you always get an answer, even if it is just a smart a** reply, but generally the right answer is there.

Thanks.

I've had good results with Winchester 231

Just trying to find the right load. Last test was 4.2gr for 115gr Plated HP. Might have my load!

I switched from Bullseye to WST and found WST to be "cleaner".

I've been happy with Universal in my 45 and 38 loads. It's clean and consistant but it tends to like a good firm crimp. I never actually tried it in a 9mm but I had plans to before I sold my last 9.

I use Bullseye for 9mm, 45ACP, and 380ACP all with good results. Blue Dot is a slow burning powder and you need a real tight crimp.

Titegroup and W-231 are both great, though you use a little less Titegroup so it loads a few more per pound.
