    9mm powder choice?

    Started reloading the 9mm glock 17L, have been finishing off some AP50, shooting 124gn berrys. Is there a better powder available or stick with the 50?

    AP50 is easy to get at the moment unlike anything else for pistols. I use 4grains with 124 berrys and cast with reasonable results but in a CZ75.

    Easy to get-who has it in stock? Tried all my locals and nothing. AP70 coming shortly so have ordered some of that but I find 50 fine in the glock.

    Vv n320 is good, but hard to get. In saying that ap50 and ap70 work well and 231 too.

    My powder of choice is Unique , Good in 9mm ,357mag,44mag, 45acp and reduced loads (10grains) in 303,308 and 8grains in 7.62x39. Its a bit dirty but then so am I. Havent seen any in over a year. Ap70 is a pretty close equiv but thats been hard to get also.

    Buy it if you see it, there's not a lot of AP50 around at the moment but more is due in soon (with no date).

    Yeah I sold 2 pound of ap50 to a needy shooter in Hamilton. He picked it up from my work when I was out. Not so much as a thank you from the miserable shit. Should have sold it to a more grateful dude.
