I really like Power Pistol for 9mm

I've been pplaying with a few loads and it seems today I hit the sweet spot.

On a Lee Single Stage

1x fired brass
4.5grn PP (ChargeMaster 1500)
124gr RN XtermeBullet
GENEX SP primer
OAL 1.130

Average 5 shot group was 2.5in, rested at 25yrd, slow fire. That's slightly better than my carry ammo, HST 124.

I love it when a plan comes together.

Nice. Good powder for 9mm in my experience.

I've been meaning to get to the can of Power Pistol on my bench. I don't load 9, but it should do well for 40 and 10mm.

It is cool when you find something that your gun likes!

It's even cooler when you can find powder like Power Pistol.

Titegroup was really good also, but only near max load. Wanted something to plink/train with that didn't punish me after 100rds.

the 4.5grn of PP was getting 950FPS on average. Very soft.

I forgot to try it in my G26. Just another reason to load some more and head out next week again.

PP has been a great performer for me with 124g loads and I load them pretty warm. Sure wish I could find some PP now though - it has disappeared!

JimBianchi,

Very nice.

I love Power Pistol especially in 9mm. The most effective rounds I have for my JR Carbine - http://www.justrightcarbines.com/ - Is a 124g FMJ RN w/PP.

I lucked out the other day & got 8 lbs from Midway, it didn't last long.

Sign up for their notifications, that's how I got the 8 lbs.

This thread motivated me to load some 9mm with PP and run it thru my G26 today.
Win case
CCI 500 SPP
5.2gr of PP
Berrys 115gr round nose
1.100 OAL
Only issue seemed to be larger than normal PP muzzle flash.
YMMV

I am actively looking for a 9mm carbine that uses GLOCK mags.

Just ordered 3, 33rd mags from Botactical for $89 delivered.the JustRightcarbine seems like a winner.

I just love my JRC, and the fact that I have quite of few 9mm Glock mags & they all work just fine in this carbine.

I also purchased 4 - 33 round mags.

you can pick up one of these;
http://shop.justrightcarbines.com/A-...Brake-BC-9.htm

they come with threaded barrels.

Locally, private party purchase, there is a Keltec SUB2000 for sale for $600. Includes 2 31rd mags.

Tempted. Most owners seem to think this is the only decent keltec made, ever.

JimBianchi,

The Kel-Tec Sub 2000 has come a long way from it's beginnings -

It is a nice small carbine that also takes all of your Glock 9mm magazines. I looked into these as well and for someone looking for a fold in half, lite weight accurate carbine, this is worth taking a look at.

Powder pistol seems to be the perfect powder under plated 9mm bullets.
