    Anybody using WSF to load 9mm? I am getting some 124 grain bullets for my CZ compact and fullsize 75's and have been offered some WSF. I have some 231 I was planning to use, but might try the WSF if recommended.

    It is supposed to be excellent in 9mm. I have over 8 pounds of it, but haven't tried it in 9mm yet :eek: (I usually use max loads of Bullseye) I have used WSF in other cartridges; it is a little slower than Unique. It seems to be interchangeable with Herco but is much less bulky (YMMV).

    +1 for WSF, I use it for full-power loads and W231/HP-38 for lighter target loads.

    I was put onto 3.9 or 4.0 gr. of WSF under a 147 gr. bullet as "the load" for a soft-shooting competition load that makes all required power factors.

    Unfortunately, I can't get E.S. and S.D. numbers that are even close to pretty with any variation of that load, using Missouri cast bullets. I'll probably not buy another pound when this one's through.

    Good Powder. It's what I use for my 9mm 124gr pills.
