    Notice they only claim it for shotgun use.

        In fine print?
        Just saying, it doesn't seem to fit a niche that was needed. It is like Unique, BE-86, and Power Pistol all very very close in burn rate and performance. I prefer PP for 9x19, but any one of them would be perfectly acceptable. However, I wonder why they would make three powders that meet the SAME need? Are we going to lose two of them?
        What worries me is, like 452AA (that was GREAT in MY .45s and was the most accurate powder I had found) was discontinued and the "replacement" they recommended was terrible in my .45s.

          But, but, it's Winchester!

          Must......... have.

          Actually ball powders often lead to migration problems for some shotshell reloaders.
          I've read that Spolar does not recommend them for their reloaders.
