Interesting article, I had not heard anything about the newer Bullseye powder requiring more powder than the older powder for the same velocity.

I'm skeptical that the "new" Alliant Bullseye gun powder has less "umph" than the "old". I think that the experts at Alliant might refute those claims.

I have seen about 1/10 grain increase in my testing.

I'll put up a chronograph while I'm shooting practice.

The other factor implied is hardness; softer bullets need more powder for the same velocity. If you're casting with variable alloy, you'll get varying results....

You have some Hercules Bullseye powder? I'm impressed!
