    I recall trying BD out back when it 1st came out, and I found it to be somewhat inconsistent in the measuring department. I switched to WW296 and H110.

    In my model 60 I load 357 mag cases with 38+p+ charges of Unique or 2400. In my GP100 I load screamers with 2400 or AA9. In Blackhawk tuned for lead I load hot charges of 2400. Heavy for caliber slugs and strong crimps for both. In 10mm I switched to AA9 with 200 grain slugs. No need for BD.

    Use it and like it in 10mm. And .357 sig. I don't know about any other cals. But I shoot 4 to 8 hun. At least a month with no problems.. I spend most of my time at the rifle area or I would shoot ten times that. I use 800x also and I know that can spike.on you if your not careful.

    I just picked up 2 pounds of BD at Gander Mountain for $15 a pound. They had about a half dozen more.
