Titegroup and Bullseye, right now I'm using Red Dot but I don't like it as much, it's too coarse.

Depends on what you want the bullet to do.

If you are on the cheap, avoid Vihta Vhouri powders...expensive.

Bullseye, red-dot, AA, cheaper powders...Tite-group works well and is on the inexpensive side.

3.2 gr tite group and a 147 gr. bullet is a nice load in 9mm.

I'm a big fan of big bullet with a fast powder. I like that type of recoil, its more of a push into the palm instead of a snap.

Winchester 231.

Some of the loads I can do between calibers without reseting my powder measure.

I run 3.0 grains of TiteGroup under a 147g Zero JHP, with an OAL of 1.150. It get me about 131 for power factor out of my Tactical.

9 MM powder

I don't know what kind of load you are looking for; plinking or a hot load. My favorite powder is Ramshot True Blue for most of my pistols (9 mm, 38 spec., 45 Colt and 45 ACP). This powder is very flexible, consistant, meters very well in progressive press, and is amazingly clean. For the 9 MM with 124 JHP I use 6.2 gr. of True Blue, and Fed 100 primers. Velocity is 1,044 FPS average for 30 shots and an SD of 8. CED chronograph screens were 15' out.

I favor a 124grn in 9mm..personally I think 147 is too heavy.

I use Bullseye for moderate practive loads and 6.4grns of Power pistol for hotter loads. Both powders meter great out of my lock-n-load progressive. The PP load gives a nice soccer ball size fireball out of my XD-9 service too.
