Thanks all for reading this: My main motivation for getting into reloading is to feed my 9mm carbine during my annual sage rat hunt. I'll be loading 115-grain JHPs but I haven't decided on a powder. I've researched this topic on various forums. Some guys recommend max loads of slower pistol powders to get top velocities and less fouling out of 16" barrels. HS-6 and even Blue Dot were mentioned. Do any of you have experience with this specific set of variables and suggested powders for consideration? Your $0.02 is appreciated.
