I lost my powder to powder conversions.

I had a little cheat sheet that I cannot find.
It had my 9mm loads on it.
I was wondering if someone can give me a hand with a rough estimate.
If I was loading my 9mm rounds with Lead hard cast round nose with 4.7 grains of Power Pistol, What would be the equivalent of the same load with Bulls Eye. I have looked through all of my notes and looked at all my empty plastic poxes with the bullet data for 9mm and I cannot find it. If someone can help me It would be appreciated. I know Bulls eye and Power Pistol do not burn at the same rate but with the low powder range I am shooting them at it did not make that much of a difference shooting the two. If anything I had less halo out the end of the barrel with Power Pistol. That powder works as a great flame thrower.
Thanks for any help if you can.
I think I found it..
4.7 grains of power pistol is equal to 3.3 grains of BULLSEYE. Does this sound correct for a 122 grain cast bullet

3.2 grains of bullseye would be a closer match. At least on the chamber pressure side. Velocity drops about 10fps.

Never take internet data as gospel.

Thanks, we were close. I only trust some peoples data doing a history search on the person and seeing where they are coming from.
I am looking to load my 9mm loads with bullseye inetead of power pistol.
Not a big deal. I should be going the other way. I just loked at my suplies and I have 2 times as much power pistol on hand than I do bullseye.
With this hot weather I am staying inside with the AC on and making as many bullets as I can. I am still cranking out 357 and 38 specials.
Then I will wswith to 45ACP/ I have a lot of Berry's HBWC that I shoot out of my SD gun for practice.
The laser on that gun is great and I can shoot with it without it and with my eyes just about closed and be on target at 12 and 24 feet. 44 ft and 25 yards I need iron sites. For an inexpensive 1911 it is reliable and accurate. I really like this one. It has been trouble free out of the box. It shoots the HBRN very well and is a clean load to shoot. No lead....
Thanks again
Bob

i have a few books on loading i could post a few pages

This book is from 2000 from "The complete reloading manual for the 9mm Luger"



ive looked at the other bullet manufacturer pages and they are all about the same for the 124 grain

this book is from 1967 Lyman Reloading Manual 44th edition

I only recently got the Unique for my 38/357 mild loads. How does it burn in a 9mm. I know it is a slow burning powder and I usually have a little left in each shell after it is fired I know Power Pistol is fast same with bullsye
Thanks for the copies. I have a lot of manuals for reloading. Speers, Hornady, Lymans and Richard Lees. They all have the load information. On the 9mm I am below the starting point for Power pistol that is why I was asking for a low powder conversions.
Unique and 9mm. I may give that one a tray. I have some non cast bullets coming. I went in on 4000 Montana Gold hollow points with a friend. I should be getting them soon.
I hope to have a bunch loaded buy the weekend when we really get the hot weather.

I run Unique in .357/38 and 9mm. Burns well for me. The only time I've noticed any extra residue is in the snubbie. I have also used it in my 30-30 with moderate success. Accuracy wasn't there with the 30-30. I'd have to look at my burn chart to see how Unique, Bullseye, and Power Pistol stack up, but I'd bet they are all fairly close.

I don't consider them close. Bullseye is on the fast end, right up there with AA#2 and Titegroup. Unique is a little slower than W231/HP38, and Power Pistol is a couple numbers below Unique. See Powder Burn Rate

Unique and Power Pistol arn't really that far off from each other, there both mid range burn rates. Bullseye is quite a bit faster, yes. I'm home now and have access to my data
