    Default International Clays for 9mm and 45ACP?

    I went to buy powder for my reloads (usually use Titegroup) but the store was out of it. The owner ISPC shooter with 20+ years of reloading experience told me I could us International Clays to reload both 9mm and 45 ACP.
    His recomended loads were:
    9mm- 124 gr. FMJ with 3.7 grains of Int. Clays 1056fps 32,000 CUP
    45ACP- 230 gr. FMJ with 4.0 grains of Int. Clays 732fps 17,000CUP

    Is this data correct?
    Will International Clays work fine in pistol cartridges?
    I woul appreciate any comments. Thanks in advanced.

    i would check this on the hodgdons website
    he may have meant universal clays, as there is more data for this.
    hodgdons has some limited international clays data available.

    Thanks again
