    So I am useing 3.5-4.0gr of TG for my 40S&W loads but I am starting to load 9mm again and looking for info. I will be useing 124gr fmj from precision delta. http://www.precisiondelta.com/detail.php?sku=B-9-124-FMJ I will be useing TG and wondering where I should start for good all around target/comp loads? I have seen a few guys useing 4.0 which from what I see on their web site is pretty close to max? 3.5 for starting?

    I use 3.8 loaded to 1.145 with 124 JHPs. Comes in around a 132 pf.

    Some people will swear up and down that TG is evil. I have no problem with it at all. Dont hot-rod it and you will be fine.

    4.0g TG with a PD 124g FMJ at 1.135 OAL is my pet Glock load. Chronos at 1100 fps out of my G34.

    4.1 start and 4.4 max.

    I used to load 4.2 under a 124 and 115. I don't use TG any more. I like WST better and it makes Fred happy. :rofl:

    Good job Fred I know that had to be tough.

    I load with a 124 Grain Montana Gold FMJ using TiteGroup, Bullseye OR VVN320 at 4.0 Grains, OAL 1.150. All three loads cycle my Glock 17 perfectly, are extremely accurate, and meet PF easily.

    Well for one, with a 147 grn MG bullet and 3.2 grns of TG, I get the PF I need for comps. Second, I can run my 17 like a raped grape with it. NO signs at ALL of over pressure. Never, EVER, had an issue.

    What's with all the fear mongering over TG?

    If I didn't shoot Lead I would be using TG. I would also try WST. But I never did that.

    No fascination here. I tried it based on recommendations of a few local guys. I was using Vhit N320.

    It worked for what I needed which was 9x19 loaded to just over minor.

    So I bought a few 8 lb jugs and have not had a reason to switch.

    TG is not my powder of choice. IMO:
    pros- cheap, available, little goes a long way
    cons- dirty, smokie, little goes a long way

    I prefer Bullseye and Unique over TG. I get VVN320 at cost, and have a plentiful supply of it, so VVN320 is my powder of choice.

    No fear, used TG in 9mm for a few years. I just found a powder I like better.

    This is out of the Hornady #4 manual dated 1991.

    Not sure what weight you want, they list a load for WST in the 147gr. They do have loads for the 90gr. and 100gr. bullets. Let me know if you want them?

    P.S. Hope you can read this.

    Charlie.
