    Probably because Win 296 is not a suitable powder for loading the 9mm. Most powders have a specific range of pressures that they work best in. Usually the range is wide enough to make the powder suitable to a variety of situations. 296 is not one of those. Its range is narrow, and high. It is most suitable for use in magnum pistol loads such as 357 mag, 44 mag, etc. You could call Winchester and ask them for load data, but I don't think they have any for that combination. I think Winchester powders are now made by Hodgdon.

    I am pretty sure you will not find any data with that combination.

    Many people say that H110 and W296 are blended to the same spec at the same place.

    Ignore the post after mine by my email buddy, 500G, he is an attorney and engineer with a warped sense of humor. He gets in trouble on forums.
    Ooo, I had better be careful myself, bold print does not cut and paste:(

    W-296 or H110 are not powders for 9mm. That powder is a magnum pistol powder which can only be used for catridges such as .357 mag, 41 mag, 44 mag, .454 casull, and so on, you get the picture?

    In the other cartridges it's designed for a magnum primer is required as well.

    I'm not sure how dense h110 is but getting 10 grains into a 9mm case may be a trick by itself.

    Ever hear of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole?
    Not very smart

    Please stay safe!

    You don't need a magnum primer for H-110, I've been loading it for years and never needed one. And in the .454 Casull with some scary loads, it always went off fine with a regular primer.
