CFE Pistol

Bottom Line: πŸ‘ so far.the loads I’ve tried so far gave claimed high velocity, but that came with higher velocity spread..

Pros:

  • Low Flash (lives up to manufacturer’s claims). More flash than True Blue though.
  • High performance at low pressure in 45 Colt and other handgun cartridges
  • Claims reduced jacketed fouling. I’m not sure how to evaluate this.

Cons:

  • Gritty feel when metering
  • Sparse load data, but getting better.
  • “Low flash” does not mean “no flash”. Some powders do better, some do worse.
  • I have higher velocity spreads than with other powders.
