Hi, Gents!

I couldn't help but notice Wideners (www.wideners.com) selling what is advertized as a surplus powder, 226, at a very reasonable price, but their ad says that there's no load data available for this pistol powder, so they worked up just 3 loads - one each in 9mm, .40, and .45acp.

Has anybody tried this? Any data out there?

Thanks for sharing!:D

It sounds about like WSF but a little faster; probably equivalent to Unique. I would use Unique load data, working up from minimums.
