    WTS: 8 pounds of CFE Pistol pickup only in SW MN

    I have an opened pound of CFE Pistol I have barely used and I don't load much for J-words anymore. So the 8 pound jug is surplus. Asking $140 and pickup only in SW MN(25 miles west of Redwood Falls).

    I have found a very good load for this stuff in a 45 acp. It is 7.5 grains with a H&G 68 copy. Very accurate.

    I shoot 9mm and 380 acp... haven't found cast data for those plus I have LOTS of powder to use for cast boolits! This was from my nephews when they were shooting with me a lot. They wanted to replace the powder they used up and didn't ask me. Went with what the guy at the store told them was great stuff... same guy who claims cast boolits will blow up your pistol! Plus they knew I had a pound on hand but it gets used only for the 380acp and 9mm hollow points I load for home defense.

    Mary,

    They list some basic loads for 9mm. I would make the assumption that you could start on the bottom of the load table and be safe. I think it would make a decent load with 147gr cast bullet at a bit less than 900 fps.

    I'm currently running a fun 9mm load with Unique of 3.4 grains with a 160gr rn cast bullet. Extremely accurate. If I lived close I would buy.

    8 Lbs in a .380! Yeah thats a LOT of shooting! I guess they wanted to make sure you had enough.

    Bump Again! Well they come and shoot with me but now they are mostly shooting rifle... one lives in AK and moose hunts every year, the other lives in northern MN and deer hunts with rifle. My nieces still come shoot pistol at times but now they all have kids so not as often either. So I have way to much pistol powder on hand. Now the 10 pounds of CFE223 won't last long...

    Hodgdon now has load data for 115gr and 125gr lead bullets for 9mm with CFE Pistol if you want to head to their website if you can't find a buyer.

    Good morning
    If we ever are plagued with another President who is anti 2nd Amendment you may wish you still had this 8 pound jug.
    I am presently using a powder last made about 1975 and it still does nicely in 38 Special, 357 mag and 44 WCF all with our cast slugs. Nobel #60 it is labeled. Well stored powder is a good investment.

    I am 57, have major back issues that will probably kill me in 5-10 years or at a minimum put me in a wheelchair. I m shooting less so I do not need 10 years worth of powder sitting around for family to try and sell(I am the only one who reloads).

    I’m struggling with a real bad back also. 5 back surgeries by the time I was 45 and at 49 I now need another one. Genetics is a real bad deal for some like me. Just wanted to say sorry about your issues but don’t give up. Sometimes beating the odds is not likely but people still do all the time.
    Hang in there and laugh when you can.

    Reside near MPLS. Sadly I just can't justiy the 290 mile roundtrip and cost of the powder (140 $) to be a profitable venture for me. The distance is equal to my driving from Mpls to Canada. (International Falls/Fort Francis) If the powder were free. I might? reconsider.
