    I run some 9mm and 380 loads with CFE-P, seems to run fairly clean for me, but those loads are at the upper end of the load data. The 380 loves it, 95g JHP over 4g CFE-P, makes an average 870fps from a 3" barrel....and spot on accuracy.

    It runs clean in 40 S&W.
    It ran clean in 357, but was inconsistent.
    It gave me squibs in 38spl at starting charges.

    In 9x19, I run 5.1-5.2 gr. with a 124 gr. JHP seated at 1.060. Runs clean at that point. 4.2 gr. in 380 with a JHP, .960" OAL.

    CFE-P is cleaner at the top end.

    I concur. CFE-P runs best a little bit warm.

    I use a lot of it and it definitely doesn't reach its full potential until it nears +P territory. I like it a lot and it's cleaner, imho, than Bullseye, Power Pistol and Unique from my perspective.

    Very true.
    Like it for full power stuff in .380 in my short barreled Kahr P380.
    Also like it for full power 9mm, shoots well at midrange charges for me in 9mm just not as clean as some others out there.
