Reloading the 9x23
I'm looking for a clean burning powder to duplicate factory ballistics. I still have a few pounds of Winchester left but I don't know if it's suitable for this application.

You want Winchester Action Pistol (WAP). If you cant find it the same powder is now being sold by Western Powder company as Ramshot "Shilloutte". That is the factory powder used.

I called Western Powder company and asked. From earlier conversations with Paul Nowak of Winchester at the Amer. Handgunner I knew that they loaded WAP in the factory 9x23 rounds.

Personally never found WAP to be all that great in 9x23. I think it is the wrong powder actually and I have burned many pounds of it. I would suggest Vitavori (have to go look that one up but the listed 38 super powders are a good ticket) and Vectan SP2 (the best powder currently for major loads) if you want to duplicate the original load and have less pressure problems. For lighter loads WAP is fine but so are any number of other powders (again an easy reference is the lighter 38 super loads) and you'll load less per charge.
I discussed 9x23 with Paul Nowak at length and came to the conclusion that Winchester never had a clue what they were doing with the 9x23. Glad they did bring it to market in any case.
Caution you can not just reference 38 super loads and duplicate them in 9x23 safely. The internal diamensions of the 9x23 case are smaller. 9mm Super comp brass is NOT 9x23 Winchester brass and should not be treated as such
