Anyone use WSF powder for 9mm or .40 cal?
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:21:11 PM »
I really like WSF for both 9 and .40; high velocity, low pressure.  Probably a tad better in the .40 cal.  Anyone else use it?

I have used it in both, and agree with that I like it a bit better in .40 than in 9mm.  I really like WSF with coated lead bullets, seems less smokey than Win231/HP-38, which is my other go-to powder.

Welcome Aboard !

Yes, in fact we have extensive load testing with WSF here on this forum.

I’ve used it in both calibers and found WST better for my purposes.

 It works very well in both cartridges but my standard go to powder for 9mm and 45 ACP  has always been W 231

It's my favorite for 175 SWC and 180 Acme in .40 and the 4.6 load in 9mm is a sweet shooter too.
