    On the pistols I prefer smaller charges of faster powders, cleaner most times unless I am just spraying aroud a bunch of bullets. So generally N310, N320 but Titegroup can save a few pennys/100.

    For 300blk I use H110/296 and 1680 more than others.

    There are lots of powders that will work for them though and I have actually used the same powder in all 3 before, HS-7 but except for "major 9" it doesn't excell in them.

    I don't change powder. I only use FMJ or plated for suppressors.

    I've found around 5#s each N310 and N320 I can buy at cost from a LGS. Been reading the N320 is clean and quite in 9mm 147 grain. Not sure on the N310?

    I use more N310 than N320, N310 is faster, N320 is pretty close to TG just cleaner.

    I have shot several pallets worth of berry's plated 147's with 3.1 gn N310 @ 1.160" OAL makes PF every time, all the time and is very soft. If you change any thing from above back off 10% and work back up. While it is the best minor 9 load I have found it has a high operating pressure.
