    Pistol Powders - What do you like?

    We're all struggling through the powder shortage and making do with what we can find on the shelves. What have you guys found and liked? Anything that you've seen in stock regularly that seems to be working out well for you?

    (Mostly interested in 9mm & .45acp)

    These days, you use whatever you can get your hands on, but I remember the days before the great depression.

    My favorite 9mm and 45acp powder is WW231/HP-38, followed by AA#2 and after that, it's what ever you can find.

    I have a lil extra #2 on hand Mike, if you need some, just let me know.

    Careful man, there's a beverage here!

    I've mainly used ramshot true blue for 9, but I'm almost out now. I've used #2,#5, and ramshot silhouette for 45. #5 and silhouette give some good velocities in 45.

    Steveptr hooked me up with a pound of accurate #2 today

    Sounds like otherwise it's full on scavenger mode. I'll let you guys know if i find anything good out there. Surprisingly adventure sports in lynnwood has been a good source. If you stop by ask to see their powder list.

    Haven't seen ANY pistol powder in awhile. Had some rifle powder show up about a month ago. Looked like things were going to loosen back up, but now there is NOTHING.
