Best powder?

Post by Fotis » 13 Nov 2017, 10:35

Have not played with the 5.7 in years. I know several powders have been introduced since then. Anyway, I mostly reload 40 gr pills when I do reload.

So is true blue (right at 6 grains) still the best all around load for velocity and accuracy?

How about AA #9?

Pretty much unless you want to import your own custom blend.

WIN571? To slow and way to big to meter into the case very well.

You must be thinking of some other powder Jay. Win571 is the same as HS7. Also it is a small ball powder just like True Blue.
