No, Ed hasn't abandoned his loyalty to Bullseye and Reloder 15. Fear not. But people are asking me about this stuff. I haven't tried it and am not about to buy an 8 lb. keg to experiment with. But a cheapskate friend in SC is also a sporting clays shooter. He says that Alliant's PROMO shotshell powder is great in 12-ga. He's even cheaper than me and wants to use this stuff for cast loads in his rifles and handguns. But of course there is no published data. Alliant's shotshell data says that it burns similar to Red Dot, but is denser.
So I told him (with humorous intent) to try 13 grains of the stuff in any strong, modern rifle of .30 cal. or larger, in a case size larger than a .30-30 and let me know if it either blows up or leads the barrel.
A call to Alliant wasn't all that helpful either. I don;'t know if this stuff is odds and ends of mixed lots left over when they sweep< the floor or what?
Anybody tried this stuff? I got no clue.
