Hodgdon CFE Pistol

Post by LenV on Fri Dec 04, 2015 3:48 pm

I am running out of Bullseye and have been looking for a more available powder. I have been finding a lot of CFE Pistol but I don't know much about it. I can find loads for the powder on Hodgdons site but not loads for us. Does anyone know anything about this powder? Have a starting load for a 200 gr LSWC? Know where it fits in the burn rate chart? Info is pretty scarce out there but the powder is showing up all over.

Thanks, Len

Thanks for the info both of you. I will probably pick some of this up for my 9 and give it a try. That pretty much matches the FMJ hot load description.

Hey Len
I got some BE at SM recently.  Already had some too.  I'll loan you jug if you want to come to Duckburg someday.  I have seen Titegroup at Cabelas recently too

Thanks Jack, I will have my daughter drop by SM tomorrow and see what they have. She works a couple of blocks from there. They have Titegroup in Newport. I was/am just being finicky.

Len - Have you tried Tillamook Sporting Goods?  The last time I was there they had a good supply of BE and other powders.
