    Just curious of everyone's thoughts on CFE Pistol.

    I use a lot of Tightgroup and I like Win231. I've never used CFE Pistol.

    not as efficient as the first 2 you mentioned, supposedly 'cleaner' but honestly I have a 3/4lb bottle of it going unused after testing. Nothing special to me.

    I use it regularly along with titegroup and a few others. As mentioned, it runs pretty clean, pretty forgiving in load work ups, etc.

    No complaints with it. As it seems, right now is a great time to pick up what you can find in stock at a good price.

    I use it all the time. The powder fits my cup size well so I don't have to measure. By cup size I'm not talking about my boobs. Just needed to get that out there to head off any lewd comments.

    I've had OK luck with it with 9mm 147gr subs, was easy to dial in.

    I've had really good luck with 357sig 90gr (hoping to break 1700fps with it when my new barrel gets here, an extra 1/2" is going to do the trick I think).

    With the 180gr 10mm loads I tried, it was pretty weak to start and wasn't showing signs of being a winner so I stopped progressing.

    It meters easy, so it's actually my current go-to when I want to experiment with something with a light starting load.
