Hodgdon titewad pistol powder

I was just on the hodgdon website and found Titewad powder being used in .45 acp. It is a shotgun powder that I've been using for the last couple of years for most of my handguns from 9mm to 45 Colt. Today I just found it listed for only the 45 acp but this is one great powder and is just going to really start to catch on since the powder co is into it for handguns. I've never seen it listed before, it's so great for revolvers that I'm sure it will catch on for the other cals. Charlie

They have a bunch at the LGS Ive been meaning to grab some for some 1oz shotshell work and some handgun stuff. I use the universal in 38/357 and love it. Burns very clean. I expect the same of titewad?

According to the Hodgdon charts, Titewad makes quite a bit more pressure in handgun loads than the other choices.
