Titegroup meters well from my Lee PPM. I use it for plated 124 grain HP with good results.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

I haven't tried it myself, but a friend of mine swears by 231 for his 9mm. He uses a Dillon as well.
I use Bullseye & AA#5 primarily, and I have found that they both meter nicely. I bought the AA#5 because I was getting frustrated with Unique and it's lack of metering. HS-6 seems to work well also, but I haven't used very much.

Powders That Meter Well

+1 on the HS-6. Great powder.

Ramshot Silhouette for the 9mm also.

My favorite 9mm Powder is Power Pistol, but if left in for a while, it etches the green see through powder hopper on an RCBS uniflow powder measure.

HP-38, Titegroup.

Surprisingly, Unique meters perfectly in my Dillon.
