I have some titegroup that I want to use up and need to load 95 gr LRN .380's. Looking for a middle of the road load for plinking out my LCP

I have always used w231.

Any suggestions? (Based on the manuals 2.8ish seems close, but I want to hear your thoughts)

Don't know if this helps, but I use 2.8 gr. of Titegroup behind Berry's 100 gr. plated, with good results in 2 different pistols.

After one attempt at titegroup I went back to 231 and Red dot. Titegroup was too inconsistent without pointing the barrel up between shots. Hopefully you will have better results.

I love Titegroup in my .380. In my load, its a 95gr FMJ, which I know is different, but I use 2.8 as well.

Be aware that, depending on the lube on your bullets, you may get quite a bit of smoke with TiteGroup. As others have noted on this forum, it seems to burn pretty hot relative to other powders, and may induce greater than normal leading as well. I'd load a few rounds and try them first, just to see how it works with your particular bullet/pistol combination.
