can you use red dot powder in 9mm I shoot a glock 34. I shoot some cowboy action and have about 6lbs of red dot thanks for any help (rob h)
I've never used it myself... But I did a bit of looking around on the net, and there are people that do use Red Dot for 9mm. Alliant also lists "handgun" as a "secondary use for Red Dot, with target shotgun as being it's primary use....

I use 4.0 grains Red Dot with 115 grain lead round nose in Glock 17 Gen 4 with Lone Wolf barrel & stock recoil spring
Yeah, I hear ya. I've used a lot of Red Dot for my 9mm loads, just not in the past few years. Speer #13, now, lists 3.6 grains of Red Dot for a max load with 125 grain lead bullets.
I've, also, used Red Dot for 115 grain clad SP's. I can't get to most of my ammo right now; but, 4 + something grains sounds about right.
You don't say what type of bullets you're using; but, yes, it's doable. Per the #13 manual the starting load for 9mm 124 grain lead is 3.3 grains.
