    What is the best VV powder for use in 45 ACP?

    What are you favorite loads using 230g FMJ's?

    N310 & N320

    N310 for light loads. N320 for light to near max loads.

    N330 just did not do all that well for me in .45, although judging it's position on burn rate charts, it should have. N340 works great, but gives more recoil than many powders for similar velocities, including N320.

    Used 320 for 200 grain loads a few years ago, awesome.

    +1. Mirrors my experiences precisely with one exception...I've not tried N-330 in .45.

    Walkalong,
    I agree, N320 is great for 45 APC.

    N320 is just a great powder. same as N330.
    Give it a go in 9mm. Great stuff. I am liking it in 40 S&W as well.
    These 2 powders are just awesome.
    Pick up a bottle of 3N37 as well for the top end of 9mm. Insane...

    I am certain he has, and likes it, if my feeble memory remembers his posts correctly. :)

    My favorite 9MM powder, bar none. I like Silhouette and WSF there a great deal but when I can get N-330, life is good. (Sitting on 5 LBS at present...:D).

    I do like it with some bullets in 40 as well.

    I wouldn't say 3N37 is better than Power Pistol, both are very good in 9MM. I can say I like 3N37 better...attains very high performance with a good bit less "flash & bang". Both are very accurate in my guns but for my money in 9MM, N-330 is it...hits the accuracy spot at or very near starting levels. If you're looking for high performance with zero flash, Silhouette wins hands down. Load data for all is available from the manufacturers as well as most load manuals.
