    In Italy it is very common and used. I have used it for many years but, many years ago, when the packaging was still a metal can.

    As often happens, this powder has passed under different hands, changing its characteristics from time to time.

    Now, Vectan, it seems to be producing it with its old features.

    In fps

    Fiocchi (factory) 9x21 FMJ TC - Glock 17
    1068.2 1083.0 1071.2 1026.2 1012.1 1047.2 1017.1 1033.1 1066.3 1052.2 1066.3 1069.2 1027.2 1058.1 1034.1

    Powder: 5.0 gr NOBELSPORT GM3
    Bullet: LRN 124 gr size .356
    Weapon: Sig Sauer P266
    1097.1 1152.2 1099.1 1080.1 1122.0 1161.1 1108.3 1077.1 1102.0 1096.1

    Powder: 4.4 gr NOBELSPORT GM3
    Bullet: LRN 124 gr .356
    Weapon: Sig Sauer P266
    1008.2 978.7 910.1 989.2 1037.1 964.6 1022.0 1005.2 890.7 959.6

    I did this because the powder was not homogeneous, but varied its liveliness from one lot number to another.

    Please note that here we use the 9x21 IMI, which has a boiling room other than 9x19.
    I would recommend you to start with 4.4 / 4.5 grains then go up by checking with the chronograph.
