All my usual places seem to be out.
I'm still setting on a 8 # jug. To bad your not close to me.
It's slower than WSF but it works really well in 9mm.
https://www.midwayusa.com/product/2900161222?pid=161222 and it's available.
I have a full pound of WSF here you could have, but don't know how to get it to you.
I'd love to find some as well! I used it to replicate AA 20ga loads... until I ran out.
I was able to secure 8lbs of WIN572 for my 20ga loads. That should hold me for a while. Meanwhile, I'll keep looking for WSF!
I normally try to order primers and powder together so only on hazmat charge but unlikely that will be possible given the way things are now.....
I was using it for heavy 1 1/8 12 gauge loads. Like you, I got down to 2 lbs and stopped, saving it for 1 1/4 oz hunting loads.
be careful posting things like that. I'm in tyler and running low on my wsf......
I use it in both 20 and 12 gauge.
Have heard it's what Winchester uses in AA's in 20 gauge.
The last time I was in the LGS in Mount Pleasant he had a 8# jug of WSF. It's been a while since I've stopped by, don't know if it's still there.
Name seems familiar.
I have not, but they're legit, as listed on the current ATF FFL list. All the online info is a match. That does not guarantee good customer service, but they're no scam.
What is the load that you are using?
IME, CFE Pistol is slightly slower burning than WSF and not as flexible as WSF at lighter powder charges but capable of accurate loads. I think BE-86 and Power Pistol are closer to WSF.
These are other comparable powders to WSF as BE-86/Power Pistol may be just as unobtanium as WSF (Many like Ramshot Silhouette) - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/same-comparable-close-powders-under-different-labels.890893/#post-12318114
Accurate No. 5
Shooters World Auto Pistol/Lovex D036-03
Shooters World Ultimate Pistol/Lovex D036-07
Ramshot Trueblue for hot loads. Meters like water.
I’m a Silhouette fan. But I saw Power Pistol either yesterday or today. Probably Midsouth or Brownells.
I forgot ammo seek, brain fart.
No, you are just getting closer to retirement where you can't hear, can't see, can't think, can't remembers ... Oh joy.
In 9mm it seems that CFE Pistol is acting like a faster powder than Power Pistol. Here are some of my data for comparison. I don't have a direct comparison between WSF and CFE Pistol, but CFE Pistol seems slower than WSF, but faster than BE86 and Power Pistol.
