Titegroup or HP38

Hey guys, I'm gonna be reloading 9mm with cast 124 grain LRN boolits. Just looking for comments regarding a good powder to use. Hodgon Titegroup or HP38 look like they have a good rep and nice ballistics. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

I like TiteGroup with plated, and jacketed. With lead I prefer Bull's Eye. It is a bit on the dirty side, though it seems to jibe right with my cast lead rounds better.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

Titegroup has a terrible reputation with cast bullets.
It has a high flame temperature and really gets the bullet lube to smoldering and smoking.
I use Bullseye for light and very light .45 loads, but HP38 for all other non-magnum pistol loads.
I have some odds and ends of other powders, maybe I will load them up this winter and shoot them up next spring.

I like a slower powder for lead for TG is out.

I have used plenty HP-38 and AA#5 with good results.

HP38 and N320 would both work extremely well for you.
