My guns love 147 gr ferderal hst oem ammo. I would like to duplicate that load as close as possible. I have 3 pistol powders:
Unique, Bullseye, and CFE pistol.
Which of these 3 powders do you all feel is more suitable for the 147 grain jhp's?

Also, I always start low and work up so with that inn mind anyone mind sharing any pet loads you may have that uses one of those 3 powder?

Thanks in advance.

Kevin

I load thousands of 147 gn round nose plated bullets every year. CFE Pistol is my go-to powder. I like the recoil feel it creates.
My mild Steel Challenge loads are 3.7 gn
Warmer loads are 4.0-4.1 gn
Note that my rounds are 1.11 COL.
As always, start low and work your way up for your firearm, and watch for signs of overpressure.

147gr Black Bullets International.

3.2g Vitavhori N320. Gets moving at 830fps. It's like shooting cotton balls.

My go-to for 147 RN is 3.9gr of WSF.

I did some experiments with CFE-P but didn't get further than 3.6gr before primers started going scarce enough that I decided to put away my pistols as fun guns for the time being. I'll revisit this sometime, but not for a while.
