    Green Dot is as good and accurate a powder for cast lead 9mm bullets as I've ever tried.

    Green is between the red and blue. It works OK for about most things pretty much.

    Green Dot works well in .380, 9x18, 9mm with light bullets, and .38 Special. Should be good in .45 Colt too, but I haven't tried that.

    In 9mm you can't achieve as high velocities as with Bullseye; Green Dot peaks faster.

    It would seem that the GD would about be optimal for many/most things but I use Red Dot for most things.

    In Sept. of 2011 I set a personal "5 shot group size" personal record at 7 yards using Green Dot in my .357.

    In March 2012 I broke that 7 yard record using Green Dot in the same .357.

    In March of 2012 I set a personal "5 shot group size" personal record at 25 yards using Green Dot in my .357.

    I also use Green Dot for most of my .357 rabbit hunting load.

    Velocity would probably be in the 875-925 fps window, but I've not chronographed it. It's "easy shootin' " tho.

    All above loads used WW brass, and a WW 125 gr. JHP bullet.

    I like it, and hope it remains on the market.
