do you need a different powder for every gun? Depends.

Different cartridges have different pressures, and pressure curves. Powder that does fine in my 9mm or 357 Mag will kill you in a 45-70. No, not a typo- KILL you.

Loads are going to vary significantly depending on the bullet used- a 115 gr 9mm and a 146 gr 9mm CANNOT use the same amount of the same powder.

First thing a novice reloader should get is a copy of The ABCs of Reloading- you can get a paperback copy over on Amazon. And pick up a good reloading manual- I'm partial to Lyman and Speer.

Every powder maker has load data available on line.

Bear in mind that in SOME cases, the load will vary based on WHICH firearm it is being used in. A load safe for a modern Marlin lever action 45-70 will destroy a trapdoor Springfield.

What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

+1000 on a good reloading book. Lyman's 49th edition is hard to beat.

I like Ded Dot for 9mm
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Win 231 is great. Works for all kinds of pistol applications. Meters really well through powder drops, due to its spherical granules..

I load my 9MM loads to +P or +P+. velocities. These heavy loads seem to like HS6 powder best.

If loading light target loads, Red Dot and Bullseye do quite well.
To the world, you may be only one person. but to one person you may be the world.

I load Berry's plated 147gr bullets and 3.6 grains of VV 320. It is an expensive but clean and efficient powder.

I hear lots of good things about Titegroup. I used to use Power Pistol for all my pistol reloading before I switched to 320. Power Pistol is not as clean and produces a bigger flash but has impressive velocities over a wide range of calibers and bullet weights.
