Hp38
 
Anybody have any opinions on using hp38?

Personally I consider 9mm to be the tipping point. I stagger fmj and jhp in 9mm. I use fmj in anything smaller and jhp in anything bigger.
Lately I've been contemplating frangible for my glock 20.

I use HP38 for just about everything from 380 to 45acp and 44 special. Though the years, I have tried to reduce the number of powders I keep on hand. Between HP38 and 231 depending what the LGS has in stock is what I use for all my practice handgun rounds.

Great, I just started reloading for my 9mm. I have true blue ramshot also but to me seems to be more dirty them Hp38 , true blue also uses much more powder then Hp38.

I started out using HP38. But I later changed to Titegroup. I like it better for big cases. But I use it in every pistol caliber.

I started reloading with HP-38 for 9mm. Works great!!! Very clean burning and accurate.

If you want peak performance, then True Blue or Silhouette.
If you don't care about peak performance but want one powder that does most things great, then get 231/HP38.
231/HP38 is THE most accurate powder I have found for the .45Auto, and AA2 is a close second.
As I told my son, if you want one powder to do lots of things well, get HP38.
