I have no idea what "1-2-3" postol powder is. Powder is in short supply. You have to shop around some of your local shops. They get fairly regular shipments, but it goes right out the door, usually same day.

You will be well served to know the kinds of powders that wil work in a given cardtridge and grab up anything you find that is usable.

I don't now if it's "better" but I like HS-6 for 9MM and Unique for .45.

It may not be the very best choice but I just loaded some 9's with Blue Dot because I have a stock of it on hand and have used it in 45 ACP also. Bullet weight will influence which powder is best.

I personally use titegroup for my 9mm and 45. Very clean burning and had great results.
