 Found this for you, but have no idea if this is a valid site or not.  Perhaps someone else has had experience with the source.

About a decade ago, Royal Scot 3032 was used by several people here in the Pacific Northwest for cast bullets loads. If you want to go back in the Match Reports, you might find a listing and a person to contact. I recall this because i was interested, but the sources dried up.

I have a copy of the Scot Shotshell Reloading Manual if you think that would help.

Back in the day, myself and another shooter here in MI. were shooting 3032 in our 30 Br's with good success. If I remember correctly, it was just a little faster than 3031.  I would feel safe using it with slightly reduced 3031 loads but if you do, start out low and work your way up. When it was available, we were buying it in cases of 4 eight pound cannisters and spitting it up. I think it was a pulldown powder or maybe rejected military powder that was used in the AR rifles. I once heard that it was rejected for too much flash. It was packaged in black milk jug type containers and had a plain white label with black printing.

Got a pound of Scot Pearl a couple years ago, $3 as I recall. Looked at a 2 or 3 powder burn rate charts and used data from close matches. I started low and had no surprises.
