9x19 loads using WAP

I have a 2kg tin of WAP. I got it to use in my 38 Super but I find that I use a 9x19 a lot more. I can't find any loads for the 9x19 with WAP. Has anyone done any experimentations. I figure the 9x19 is only a mild 38 Super so what's the big deal?
If anyone can assist with info or source for same it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Bet you didn't read this part of the page:

" Number One:

The information and data contained on the reloading pages is for informational purposes only. I do NOT assume, nor do I accept ANY responsibility, implied or expressed, for the accuracy of the material posted, nor do I assume or accept ANY liability or responsibility, implied or expressed, of the results you will obtain by using any of the data posted on these pages.

I have no control over variations in components, reloading tools or your procedures. YOU are solely responsible for EVERYTHING that may occur using this data.

Number Two:

The information listed for MAXIMUM loads may be safe only in modern firearms of current manufacture and in excellent condition! The age and condition of YOUR firearm is the determining factor! NEVER, EVER, START WITH ANY OF THE MAXIMUM LOADS!!!

Number Three:

Always start out with the lightest powder load listed and work up GRADUALLY until signs of case failure or excessive pressure become evident! Or until the level of performance you desire is reached. WHICHEVER COMES FIRST!!

Number Four:

The data contained herein is NOT bounded by SAAMI limitations! Because of this fact, be ABSOLUTELY sure you understand numbers one, two and three above!! "

The problem seems to be your eyesight...

There is data for the .38 Special and WSF with bullet weights from 110 grain to 150 grain...

More importantly, where did you find Winchester Action Pistol? It is no longer being manufactured. Wish I could get some...

If it's not the best 9mm/.38 Super powder, I wish someone would tell me what IS! Power Pistol is the closest thing on the market today.

RUMORS LIES INNUENDO

I have furniture made from cases of WAP.

Rumor: Silhouette is WAP.

LIES: It IS the best; fact.

Innuendo: The Winchester load data must be wrong, because my data is different.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha !

Excuse me, I gotta go find some fingers.............

Pingun .45 on 1911 Forum talked to someone at Western Powders and they confirmed that Silhouette is indeed WAP. They apparently buy it from the same place Winchester bought it. I compared the most recently published Winchester data for WAP to the published loads for Silhouette and they are identical. I'm sure that many people will say not to assume anything and to only use published loads, etc. Well they're my fingers and after using Silhouette with WAP data I still have all of them.

Both are manufactured by Primex Corporation at St. Marks Powder plant in St. Marks, Fl.

However, just like with Hodgdon H110 / Win 296:
HS-7 / Win 571:
Hodgdon HP-38 / Win 231:
They will be from different lots and may have different burning characteristics.

Use caution and work up after every new lot of powder recieved if using at or near max loads.

Example, my first lot of Alliant RL-22 was somewhat slower than latest lot. The first one would take 61.0gr in my .30/06 with no pressure signs, and >1" @ 100yds with Speer 180 Soft Pt. Velocity was 2,775 fps
Latest max is 60.0gr. and velocity is higher than first batch, and accruacy is off slightly. Velocities are over 2,800fps from 24" barrel. All other components were from same lots as previous loads.

I have a 2kg tin (WAP) left-over from my 38 Super days. It sounds like Silhouette would be the go for you.
