I have loaded Longshot, WSF, SR 7625, and unique in 9mm and like them all. I like the 7625 and WSF the best. I started out with longshot and its pretty common around here versus unique and WSF. When I started out, I bought a pound of each when I could find them so that I could get a feel for what I liked, now I pick up a pound of those when I see them. That way I always have a pound of something I know I can load in 9mm. SR 7625 is a really universal handgun powder and I really like it so I might be inclined to pay up to $40 a pound for it. WSF is a super good powder too but its about like finding unicorn tears around here. We have Longshot coming out our ears around here. In all likelihood you will have to settle on a shotgun powder and pay a premium(around $40) if you want to reload. It might help if you order a large quantity from an online supplier and eat the Haz-Mat fee... Sorry for my rant... hope it was of some help at least.
