Fellow Reloaders,

Does anyone know where to purchase any Winchester 244 locally (anywhere between Olympia and Bellevue)? I'm very interested in giving this powder a test spin, particularly for my 9mm and 40S&W loads. I'd prefer to support a local business rather than the World Wide Web (plus fork over HAZMAT fees & shipping). If any of you WaGunners happen to have a pound or so for sale, PM me.

I'm also open to suggestions regarding other powders that burn comparably to 244, other than HP-38/W231 (my current powders of choice) and CFE Pistol. I reload coated bullets most of the time (Blue Bullets), so I shy away from fast burning powders ( Titegroup :thumbsdown: ) Thanks in advance.

Awe hell, I just bought a few pounds from Grafs. I'll report on it as I develop loads. Hopefully it will be beneficial to the community.

Powder has arrived! I'm going to work up a few loads in 9mm/40 S&W and see how it goes.

I had never heard of it until you posted. It certainly sounds like good stuff, at least according to Winchester.

Looking forward to the report!
