38 Super Major Load with Blue Dot?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Just picked up a V12 and im going to start working up some major loads. I have been using Unique and Win 231 for my 9mm minor loads in my limited with great results. I know i need a slow burning powder to work the comp effectively, so i was wondering if anyone tried blue dot? Ill be using a 124gr CMJ round nose. Any advice would be great!

Alliant lists 9.2gr as a starting load at 1311 fps w124gr w 1.260 OAL CCI primers.

I did a search for Blue Dot and didn't find any usefull information. I've only run into a couple of BlueDot shooters in the last few years, you can smell them at a match, Blue Dot has a pleasant odor, I thought about using it just because I like the smell of it burning. My smith tried it and said it worked good but went back to 3N37, go figure.

When I was running a Tanfo Henning gave me a IMR7625 load, I found it violent, so I tried other things like N350, AA#7, 4756, 3N37, 3N38, HS6, Silhouette etc.
