Hi all
I'm new in the USA so I ask for your help.
In europe I used to reload many calibers (due the difficult to find ammos, and their price), but here in the USA ammos are very cheap, so I think I will reload just 223 for having better ammos then the commercials.
What powder ? Is W748 a good one, or can you suggest some better ?
And I would reload 9mm, what powder for this ?
Thank you all.

W748 is good, I use that for my 223 loads.
9mm I use Unique or Red Dot

When you can find it Winchester 231 works for almost all pistol calibers. There are several for 223 that will work, I have a list I made, but that is at home, later tonight I can add some to it, but I did find a new powder for Just 223, it was called CFE 223; new brand.

Good ol' BL C2 is great for general purpose 223 up to a 62 gr projectile. My favorite pistol powders are Bullseye for 45 ACP, Unique for 38/357 and Red Dot for 45 Colt. I guess I tend to stay with the old standbys.

What he said.

BL C2 flows so nicely especially is progressive loaders.
