After loading with unique for a number of years I am looking at trying a different powder. Main reason is to get something that is not as dirty but still economical if that is possible anymore.
I will be loading for 9mm using zero bullets 115fmj, 124fmj, maybe 147jhp, 40cal zero 165jhp, and 45acp zero 230fmj. All of the loads will be done using a dillon 1050, have a hornady powder cop on it. I don't want a WWB type load that is very under powered. Mid to full power is what I/we shoot. Looking at titegroup, WSF, w231, universal, or clays. Any input on what would be better for all around use would be great. Not object to others as ling as I can get in 8# jugs:)

I like Titegroup and WSF. Power Pistol should work too. The loads would be hot.

Solo 1000 is far more clean than "antique" er, "Unique." It will also recoil less for the same velocity/bullet weight.

If you want something cleaner in the exact same burn-rate range as Antique, try Universal (also called Universal clays).

How well does WSF or universal meter?

Of the ones your are looking at I would recommend W231. I use it and Accurate #7 more than anything and have been very pleased with the results with all kinds of 9MM bullet types.

I was recommended to use WSF for my 9mm and WST for my 45 loads. The WST is phenomenal in my 45 loads and super clean compared to the titegroup i had started out with. WSF has been good for 9mm and especially so in my 147gr loads.

That was some good advice I got. Oh they also meter very well.
