  • Titegroup brethren! A few questions if you will.

    Posted by james on November 8, 2021 at 2:27 am

    Calling all my fellow titegroup brethren! Relatively new to reloading (only reloaded & shot 1600 or so 9mm) and have scored 2#s tg and have shot a few hundred outta my edc. I gotta say, huge fan. They’re only range plinking loads so I haven’t chronod but I’m loading 115 rmrs w/3.8(+/-0.1gr) with a 1.100 COL (out of my Hornady book) and a crimp so light it barely exists. However, I am pretty wary of tg still despite shooting a few hundred rounds, as Ive read it’s a real spicy powder and I can tell from all the load data I’ve seen the margin of min/max is not big by any means. So I wanted to ask and see what a few more experienced fellows were loading their 9mm at with tg. I know there’s plenty that’s left to preference but more than anything I’m just curious, and it’ll help calm my nerves a bit about the powder. Also, does anyone use tg for anything heavier than 115? Ideally I’ll just be able to buy an 8#er of cfe pistol for the heavier projectiles as I have heaps of data for it and it meters beautifully, however I would still like to have feedback with tg & heavier projectiles in the meantime incase it takes longer to get more cfe.

    No one has mentioned that Titegroup is a dirty powder compared to other powders. Can anyone confirm this? My brass always comes out sooty at the mouth.

    I use 3.5gr of it in my 124 9mm loads. Works fine in my suppresses stuff

    I’m shooting 145gr bayou bullets with 3.2gr of titegroup. It was the most accurate load for my Walther Q5.

    Titegroup is my preferred powder for heavy subsonic loads. 2.9 gr with a 165gr xtreme bullet is quiet and cycles anything.

    I use 4.1gr on 115gr fmj and it always cycles and drops brass right at my feet. I use 3.9gr on coated lead 115gr. Same thing, drops brass right at your feet.

    I do 4.0gr of TG over xTreme 124’s with a COAL of 1.150. Avg 1061 fps from my Chrono

    3.2-3.6gr on a 147gr RN bullet. If you use a coated bullet, the round will be pretty smokey. These rounds shoot like bunny farts.

    I much prefer slower powders in 9mm, but it does work well for low recoil loads in heavier weights. If running a suppressor, TG would be fantastic as it is less gas for the suppressor to eat (less powder = less gas).

    There are madlads out there who use an even faster powder, Titewad, for 9mm.

    Just be wary of undercharging, overcharging, and double charging and you should be fine.

    I just loaded 147gr LFP (Hi-Tek Coated) at 3.2gr/1.135 OAL and they run great. Also loaded 124gr LRN (Hi-Tek Coated) at 3.8gr/1.12OAL and they ran fine also. Titegroup has become my favorite powder for competition loads.

    I like it. Meters very well. Economical. Lots of current data. Lots of different caliber data. Makes reasonably accurate ammo. I load on a single stage. I don’t think I would be using it on a progressive press, but certain many folks do, without incident. I tend to use near MAX loads of it. Did I mention I use a single stage? I eyeball every cartridge with a strong light. Have a procedure to definitely reduce the possibility of double charging. I keep a sharp eye on case tension, inadvertently slamming projectiles deeper on near max loads isn’t a great idea. It’s a good powder if you respect it.

    I use 3.1 for 147 coated Brazos bullets. Works well.

    I’ve loaded at least 5000 9mm rounds using Titegroup (115, 124, and 147gr) with no issues whatsoever. I have also used hp38, cfe pistol, 700x, and Alliant bullseye and unique. All good.
