    Query lang po. Paubos na po kasi ang SMP powder ko. May alam po ba kayo ng powder na pwede sa 9mm, .40SW at .45ACP? Kasi magastos po para sa akin na bibili ng ibang powder para sa tatlong caliber. Ung SMP po kasi pwede kaso wala na po mapagbilhan.. Salamat...

    IMHO, WW231 is the all-around powder. Since 1986, I have been using this on .45, 38Super, 9mm and lately 40SW. Just my 1 Dirham.

    WW231 is very hard to find, especially in the Philippines. I think Hodgdon is the one making the WW231 now.

    There are others who use Bullseye; Titegroup, Clays, and Power Pistol have also been mentioned by my suking gunstore as good powders.

    You might want to go to the websites of these powders and check the reloading data just to make sure.

    Ditto on VV 320, doubt titegroup is available but if it is, it is cheaper than 320 but too smoky for lead. I use Winchester WST for moly coated and lead loads. Least amount of smoke for lead and moly coated loads and 40% cheaper than 320.

    sa stronghand available ung zira.

    zira is cheaper. P1,200(the last time i got 1, its a cheaper version of N320)

    excellent powder talaga ung VV N320. cost around P1,650

    zira3 have the same character of the N320. i personally use N320 though.

    No kidding. Me powder brand na 'zira' ? Baka ma-zira ang baril pag ginamit yan. lol.

    ontopic : I use Titegroup for 9mm and .40S&W but Clays for .45 ACP. Parang standard na ata to sa IPSC/IDPA.

    does zira burn clean? Is there still ADI? If I remember correctly that was an OEM of Clays and International Clays. One of the cleanest burning powder I ever used
