    not so new :lol:
    but new here.
    treat the 9m as a 38 that generally makes them work better.
    358 boolits, flair with the 38 expander, and some even size with thier 38 sizer die.
    all things to try.

    that's exactly why you won't find data for the super slow powders in many/most rifle cases.

    4064 is most likely best for operating the rifle.
    the others may have higher port/muzzle pressure.

    win with ball powders

    1-20 isn't that kinda slow.
    for some reason i think that is what was used in the 44-40.
