    I have never used power pistol, but everything i read about it has it pegged as one of the most versatile pistol powders around. Ill try it someday, but for now, I have about 35 pounds of various other pistol powders to use up;)

    I really like power pistol in 9mm its the cleanest burning powder I have found yet. Also load it in 45, and great, clean results there as well. Requires a few more gr for a nominal load than bullseye which is a plus for catching double charges, and maximizing case volume with powder.

    PP also seems to have a wide range from start to max which I like. I havnt tried power pistol yet but will soon.

    Power Pistol was designed specifically for the 9mm. It does have a pretty good muzzle flash which some people find objectionable. It is very clean burning.

    I'm looking to reload a lot of 9mm over the winter. I stopped by the only place that carries any sort of selection of reloading supplies here, and I swear they used to have power pistol. So I asked if they could order some, they said they would for $5 fee. This is ridiculous because they already charge way too much for powders there. $34 for 1lb of Varget , i paid $31 for BL-C2, etc. AGH! I think the Walmart here has some powders, I will have to check.

    Anyway back on topic, I've been wondering about power pistol too and am convinced to try it :) I might order a metric crap tonne online and eat the hazmat fee. I figure a few pounds of pistol powder, cast lead bullets and a single stage press should keep me busy all winter
