CFE Pistol

I found a pound of CFE Pistol at the local gun shop.

First tries with this show it meters well through the Lee Auto Disk measure.

First time to the range showed it didn't have a lot of muzzle flash.

Not much of a pistol shooter but did get some holes in the paper.

I use it for several pistol rounds. Like it and will continue to use it even though the old standbys are back on the shelf.

I started using CFEPistol powder when it first hit the shelves, havent looked back since. I use to use HP38 & WW231 for many years due to versatility... but i get better accuracy w/CFE and its WAYYYYY cleaner burning. No malfunctions...slide is not pounding the frame at all. I shoot CFEPistol in ALL my 9mm guns...works absolutely awesome. I will list my pet load in here, but take caution and start low with the powder charge as always.

9mm Berry`s 124gr Plated FMJ
CFE Pistol Powder @ 4.9gr
WW Small Pistol Primer
Bullet Seated @ 1.150
Lite Taper Crimp (.3795)

I`m getting 1/2 dollar size groups @ 10yds....not to bad for a blind old coot...!!!!
No bench rest, just 2 handed shooting.
