Thread: Good general purpose powder for 9mm

  1. #1

    Good general purpose powder for 9mm

    Hey folks,

    i was wondering if anyone can recommend a good powder for reloading 9mm pistol rounds?

    I will be loading with a lee hand loader so any recommendations on bullets, primers etc would also be welcomed.

    regards,

    What powders do the dipper chart recommend? I've never found them to be far off the mark.~Muir

    I used to use Viht 340 or 3N37 in the older times. Alliant Blue Dot works well too.

    Will a Lee loader work well with 9mm or for that matter at all? Just thinking of the tapered case and crimping.

    What will you be using the ammo in?

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    I used Viht 3n37 in days gone by. Worked well

    Another vote for Blue Dot. It's worked well in my pistols and AR with a variety of bullet weights.

    Of course, its been made of unobtainium lately, but if you get some, I think you'll be quite happy with it.

    Universal. ... 100gr fmj and 4gr can't go wrong

    It'll be used in a Beretta PX4 F, and I can't see why a loader wouldn't work, many 9mm have been loaded with hand loaders! I'll see what is available as the red dot and blue dot are both in short supply apparently.
