I had very poor velocity spreads and dirty inconsistent burning with 4.2 grs and a 185 lead.
Malfunctions,a lot of unburned powder forward of the gun

lead, 4.2 S1K gave around 720 fps but with better std deviations (17 to
20) but not like Bullseye which gave me std dev 10 to 12 in 45 loads and
with less powder (3.9 grs).

Shotgun loadings, exactly to their data, are 150
fps low in the lighter payloads, they favor 1 1/8 loads to get close to
spec velocity

It is supposed to be a "fast" powder but isn't. Acts more like Green Dot.

Turns out there are or were multiple manufacturers of it, each with varying results.

Where was your powder made? That said, I like the feel of it. I would use Green Dot or may N320 next time if I could get any.
