Hodgdon CFE Pistol is a spherical pistol propellant that was specifically developed for competitive shooters and handloaders who are looking for an ideal powder for target shooting or self-defense loads. It incorporates a unique ingredient called Copper Fouling Eraser (CFE), which was initially used in military propellants. The inclusion of CFE in CFE Pistol helps to significantly reduce copper fouling, thereby extending the periods of consistent accuracy and reducing the time required for barrel cleaning.
This particular powder, CFE Pistol, is known for its excellent performance in various cartridges, including but not limited to:
- 9mm Luger: The 9mm Luger is a popular cartridge used in handguns for self-defense and target shooting. CFE Pistol offers optimal performance and consistent results when loaded in this caliber.

- .40 S&W: The .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson) cartridge is widely used in law enforcement and self-defense. CFE Pistol provides optimum performance and reliable accuracy for this caliber.
- .45 ACP: The .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) is a popular and powerful cartridge used in various handguns. CFE Pistol is well-suited for this caliber and offers consistent performance.
In addition to these mentioned cartridges, Hodgdon CFE Pistol can also be used effectively in other pistol calibers. It is known for providing consistent velocities, clean burning characteristics, and reliable ignition, making it a preferred choice among competitive shooters and handloaders who seek optimal performance in their loads.
