I'm about to pull down 100 195s, wonder if anyone has used the factory powder to work loads up?

Topics been covered many times and it's a pretty stupid endeavor.


More then a dozen different and COUNTING powders have been used.


The older powders weren't really a mystery. only 2 where used but that was for white box stuff.

Since then the 195 in the blue and white boxes use what ever powder Fiocchi has sitting around in quantity to complete the run.

In other words, whatever you are thinking about trying let us know and Jay will tell you if it will blow your face off or not.

Unless you are positive it is from the same lot. I kept all the factory powder from when I pulled my whole 2,000 round case of ss198lf. I have not tried loading anything with it yet but I know it is in the lot!!! THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! mkay

Or at least have a video camera running when you test fire it preferably live streaming to the web since up loading it later with a gimpy hand or two will be a lot harder .

So then the simple answer is yes, and there's no advantage to trying. Got it.

I use it to load my mixed powder can. Once full, I may shoot it or light it up :thumb:
