    Well, I got tired of hearing Jack brag on Alliant Power Pistol, so I bought a pound to try! I loaded 7.0 grns. behind a Zero 230 grn. FMJ bullet, Federal 150 primers, and fired 100 rounds of it through my G30 today!

    I gotta tell ya'll................. this stuff is fun, and it's accurate too! I liked the muzzle flash, the boom, and I was surprised to get a 5 shot group at 10 yds. that measured an inch!

    If you want a nice target load, shoot 4.6 grns. of WST with the same bullet I listed. But now if you want to shoot something with a little zest to it, try loading up some Power Pistol with the recipe I listed! THANKS, JACK!

    Good Shooting! :wavey:

    I really have to get out of my comfort zone and try some other powders. I have 3 or 4 pistol powders I use for everything pistol and 3 rifle powders for all my rifle calibers. Well 4 if you count black powder.

    I count it as my powder and that Black Powder will give you big flash, big bang, big fun, and big clouds of smoke when you use it in some guns. I just love it!
