    I'm looking for a powder slower burning than the extremely-low-muzzleflash SR4756 for my 357SIGs.

    Anyone have a observation on the MF of N105?

    The results of my research...

    Come on, N105 users--there must be a few of you out there!

    Best I remember, it was less flashy than BlueDot or PowerPistol (I know - that's not saying much). It's been almost 10 years since I tested it in 357sig & 10mm (don't have either anymore) and didn't have much data to work with, but distinctly remember that reduced loadings left a bunch of unburned residue - it was wierd, the residue was yellow, like powder kernels that just changed color rather than burned. I ended up deciding the extra cost wasn't worth it, and stuck with Power Pistol.

    I'll post more in the Barnes-bullet thread, but I discovered that N105 is slightly too bulky for effective 357SIG loads with the Barnes TAC-XP bullet. Back to Accurate #7!
