I’ve used Power Pistol, N-105, Blue Dot, AA#9 in my Sig 10mm and Kimber 10mm. This BE-86 has been the best for consistent accuracy, not much variation in different temperatures anywhere from below zero winter to hot summer temps. I carry my Sig outside trapping with me in the winter. I’m using a Vortex Venom reflex sight on it, planning to upgrade the reflex sight to something a little higher quality. But I’m getting very good accuracy with the powder and Hornady XTP 180 bullets. Good enough to get a coyote at around 65 yards

I have used probably used 30# of this powder just last year in both 45ACP and 9mm. It works very well for both of them. I started using it mostly due to its reputation that flash is reduced. I have narrowed it down to 9mm only though and have a diffrent powder for 45.
