U do not want Alliant Powders they are nowhere to be found. The Clays line up is unobtanium.
So we around to 231 or HP38 which are the same thing. Win 244. CFE Pistol.

For .38 I use VV 320

VV 320 is great for the .38 it’s pricey but clean
I don’t get unburned powder causing issues and it appears stable in a range of temps


For 9 mm I use Titegroup

it’s economical, but burns hot, a little goes a long way
You really need to be on top of your reloading game to use it as it does not fill the case and a double charge is hard to catch.
That is until you pull the trigger on a double charge, then you will be picking up pieces of your plastic gun blaming
Weak brass, and wondering , with out admitting it , if it was a double charge.

Yup, Titegroup likes to tease new reloaders with it's lower price, luckily many are warned off by how hot it burns and interacts with coated/cast lead bullets.

The last two polymer pistols I've seen with shattered frames...SIG 320 and Glock 34...were using cartridges reloaded with Titegroup.

Whatever savings I'd experience using it in place of my N310/N320 isn't worth the chance of experiencing a Kaboom on the range




No, Daoism isn't a religion

I use TiteGroup (9mm) and CFE Pistol for 38 Super.
Both for 45 depending on what I'm loading for.
