How does the "competing or use of compensators" require different powders? How will it be good/bad for range ammo?

It's a slow burning powder that produces lots of gas. Without a compensator for the gas to act on, the recoil will be harsh.

Dang it...The knuckleheads at the range said it was fine!!! That's why I hate dealing with the local folks...I hope they will take it as a return, but probably not...

The powder will work. Won't be the best feeling load ever but they will shoot fine.

Choosing the right powder for 9mm 115 gr

I have used Titegroup powder for a year with no issues. I have loaded around 1500 rounds. I load 4.0 grains for 9mm 115 grain. It sounds like maybe the powder did not drop in the casing and you heard the primer

Like Scooterj said, AutoComp will work fine, it will just produce a little more noise, flash and thump than some others might but you may not really notice it, especially at loadings below maximum. Guys who shoot quickly for score try to avoid that kind of thing unless they have a compensated gun, but most range shooters will not notice it that much if at all. There are a lot of other powders that are harsher than AutoComp.

So your "local guys" are not really evil and you still have a pretty good powder for your use. And beyond all that, it's a 9mm... were not talking severe recoil here no matter what powder you use.

Just because someone works in a shop that sells reloading supplies doesn't mean they know anything about it. In fact, most don't. Better to pick the brains, on forums like this, who have been reloading many years.

Another agenda the shop guys might have is to push a powder that isn't selling well.

You might want to ask on The Handloaders Bench. Lots of reloading smarts there!

Got some data you care to share? I picked up a # of 700X and 800X a few weeks ago and my books have no data on it for 9mm. I have found some on google searches. Just curious what you're using and why you chose 700X. I'm still starting out. Only about 250 9mm loads done so far.

Lyman shows the load range for the 115 gr. XTP using 700-X from 3.1 grs. giving 918 FPS @ 20,200 CUP to 4.5 grs. giving 1171 FPS @ 31,700 CUP. OACL is listed at 1.090" but can be loaded longer depending on your barrels chamber dimensions. Nothing shown for 800-X, but it's capable of producing higher velocity. As you'll soon find out, its very large flake size makes it a pain to meter and some loaders go to the trouble of weighing individual powder charges. Its velocity potential makes it very popular for 10mm. Maybe someone will have data for the 9.
