Fast burning, double base powders usually produce more muzzle flash. It is just this type of powder that works best in the relative short auto pistol cartridge.

Moderate charges of slower burning single based powders usually produce less flash, but usually don't work as well in auto pistol cases. As a user of factory loaded ammunition, this is something over which you have no control.

Either accept what you've got. or seek another brand.

Me, I'm used to the .44 Magnum and its three foot fireball out front.
