You might provide some extra info about your gun.
If this gun is for Steel Challenge type matches (where you just have to hit the steel) you can go with a lower power factor without much worry. If it is for a steel match that has poppers and such (that you have to push over) you might want a litle more juice in the loads...or not.
A lot of the big bigs seem to set up their steel guns to be pretty light, so that they move from taget to target quickly. They take weight off the slide and such, so that the gun cycles faster with the lower power loads.
Springs and how much comp you have can also be a factor.
In general...a slower burning powder will have more gas to vent thru the comp...making it more effective.

Others here can answer better than me. Popular powders would include VV3n37 and Vectan's SP2.

Too slow a powder risks incomplete ignition, and gobs of unburned powder gumming things up.
Try a 115 w/ 5.2 of VV-330, or a 124 w/ 5.0 of VV-330

Thanks for kicking in...I was out of my element.
For a steel gun...are we still looking for a flat shooter or should we go with a softer shooting load?
chi, please let us know how it works out.
