    Does anyone use solo 1000 in a load? I tried search for solo and s1k use on the forums here, but I couldn't find anything, in the reloading section at least.

    I know a lot of people here use other powders, but I have a bunch of Solo 1000 powder since I use that powder for my competition .40 S&W rounds, along with the 9mm that I make. On the actual container, it says it's fine for .45 ACP, and cowboy loads. So I'm figuring that it could actually do 10mm fine...

    Thoughts?

    I have not used it, but I found some old Scot Powders data in Loadbooks.

    Maxes listed

    150 gr Sierra JHP 6.1
    170 gr Hornady HP 6.0
    175 gr LSWC 6.1
    190 gr Sierra JFP 5.8
    200 gr Horndady FJM 5.4

    Please reduce by 10% and work up carefully. Should be an ok powder for plinkers.

    I've not used it, either. By looking at those charge weights and my powder chart, I'd recommend ONLY using it for very light bullets (125/135), or very light loads (~1050, w/ 170-ish bullets). It's a fast powder, faster than Green Dot, and a lot faster than W231 or AA2, similar to Tight Group and Bullseye. .45 ACP and "Cowboy" loads are usually big, but very slow (by comparison).
