Accurate #9

Accurate #9 is a handgun powder that is “ideal for high power loads in traditional magnums… such as the 357 Mag … also … large magnums such as the 460 S&W and 500 S&W for economical target loads. Made in the USA.”

Bottom Line: Still evaluating.

Manufacturer’s load data portal.

Pros:

  • Meters very well. So far the RCBS ChargeMaster has metered every charge exactly, while H110 charges would run over by 0.1 grain or so occasionally.
  • Good amount of load data available, for magnum and heavy calibers.
  • Lower flash than H110. Not sure I’d call it low flash overall though.

Cons:

  • I’ve had high shot-to-shot velocity variations with it.
  • Limited application.

Notes:

Still evaluating…
