Great weather, 8 great stages, good squad.  If you're on the fence about competing just get out and do it.

The video and the shooting are excellent. I have but one question, what kind of black powder are you loading for your 9mm ammo?

It's Prima V.  I believe this batch I scraped the coating.  Prima V is excellent powder, I just wish it didn't smoke so bad.  It burns pretty cool and fills the case better than something like Titegroup, although doesn't meter quite as well.  I would entertain another powder, but I'm generally pretty happy with Prima V.  If I could get my hands on some E3 I would but that's unobtanium

Nah, you didn't scape anything. I had the same problem with the latest batch too. I really wish they had left it alone because the first batch that came in was a really great powder. I switched to Clean Shot and have been very happy with it so far. Good shooting none the less. I just had to poke you a little, you know.  ;D

PM in coming.  I'm about halfway through my batch of Prima V.  The smoke is a bit obnoxious.

Not what I want to hear :( I have a 1 lb bottle of Prima V, and I've been reading the same stuff over on BE. I think some guys said they were loading them hotter to reduce smoking, but then the PF goes up.

It's not the end of the world.  Just use it up and move on

Well....went out to shoot my new P-07 on a warm and very humid day. Sun was about 2 hours from setting and guess what? Clean Shot was smoking like a Civil War Cannon. Just terrible! So giving it the benefit of the doubt because I know under certain circumstances of humidity and sun position any powder will seem to smoke, I went back insude and got some 135's I had loaded with N320. Little to no smoke in comparison. Just ordered some of the new Alliant Sport Pistol, we shall see.
