It is my favorite powder for SD style loads in 9mm. It meters perfectly in my Dillon, excellent load density, low flash, great velocity, shoots pretty clean.

I load mainly with 124gr jacketed, but have shot a lot of 115gr jacketed with it. My go to load for 115gr jacketed was 6.7gr at 1.140" OAL. This is a pretty hot load and is over their current max of 6.5gr (6.7 was max in their old data, a pretty full case).

Maybe start at 6.0grs and work up for your gun.

Just order my first two lbs this morning. Here's the VV load data for 9mm which includes 3N37 loads. Good luck to us both.

I was working on some 10mm loads this weekend. I was using VV-N105, Longshot and Blue Dot.

I could get to similar velocities with the Longshot as the VV-N105 before pressure signs started to raise their ugly head, but the main difference were the SD's and how clean it burned compared to the others. With the VV-N105 the SD's were all single digit once adequate pressures were reached. In the case of BD and LS the SD's never were in the single digits and many were in the 20's.

Vihtavouri powders are expensive, but they really are a cut above.
