Winchester 244 Thoughts

Anyone using Winchester 244 for multiple handgun loads?

I am only interested in users of Win244 and their comments about the same.
I know there are other powders out there and at this time am not interested in them.

Normally I use WST for most loads and make up what’s left with W231.

Running low on both and want to try the Win244 to see how it works for .44mag/spl, .45ACP and 9mm.

All will be used for target plinking and midrange loads. Paper punching and gong ringing.
On paper this powder looks good for all.

I have used W-244 in 9MM and 357Mag with very good results in both calibers. It should work well for you.

Thanks. I hope so. Just ordered 4 pounds since I couldn't find any at all locally in 4 cities.
I've wasted more money before but I think I will find something to use it in.
