Hope the picture was done correctly,,   went out with a new bullet (to me)  to try with tight group powder and was pleased with what i saw.. ,, yes im to the right a bit but im not sure if its me or if i need to move the rear site a hair or two i really think its the site this gun has always shot to the right,,  I Was able to catch 2 of the bullets by shooting into milk jugs full of water ,, bullet totally destroyed the first jug and ended up splitting the back of the third but bullets stayed inside ,,  i really didnt expect the lead and jacket to stay together with a bullet like this but as you can see they did,,  i dont own a chrony so i have no idea what the velocities are but they are shooting straight so far,,   ill be trying some Power pistol in a couple days to see how that goes.........

You've got some good groups there.

I bought a pound of Titegroup a few months back and still haven't really got to work with it yet.

Got some of the bullets from Everglades, too.  The 115's I used (some of them) and they do just as well in my pistol and carbine as the Precision Delta 115 grain hollow points.  I haven't gotten around to trying the 124's yet.  Got 500 of them sitting in a box (got Nosler 124's, too, but I was using them in the .357 SIG, not the 9MM).
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

I use TG exclusively in my 9mm's.

Just sips the powder when using the heavier stuff.  1lb will load more than 2 full cases of bullets with around 3 gr charges.

After seeing those groups I may have to revisit Titegroup. I ended up with about 16lb bought dirt cheap and never had that kind of groups. I loved the clean burning and the economy, but Power Pistol seemed to be the magic one for me.

Interesting because Titegroup was the dirtiest hottest powder I ever used.
I was in a competition setting once and my fiber optic melted out fro the heat using TG.

I know it is inexpensive but its too dirty for me.

3 grains? I have to use 6.5 grains of AA#7 in mine for training ammo, 8 for "SD" practice ammo. What velocity do you get with 3 grains, and is that for jacketed, plated or lead?
I might have to look into this stuff, Accurate Arms powders are sometimes difficult to find.

I am using between 2.8 and 3.0 gr of titegroup with 165 gr extreme bullets.  Both charges cycle even the heavy bolts like the scorpion, uzi and mac10 machinegun.  Sometimes I load them with 3.0 when I'm wanting a little extra power on the steel.

I normally load 147gr bullets with 3.2 gr of titegroup.  Yes, jacket round nose

And titegroup is among the cheapest of powders around $17 a pound.

I also use it for light recoiling shotgun too.
