    Oddly enough, 231 has a burn speed similar to many shothsell powders. However, I have NEVER seen a load for it.

    There may be some issue with the weight of a shot charge, or a spiky pressure curve. When loading handgun ammo commercially, I used many kegs of it.

    Until I see data from Hodgdon, like you, I will NOT try this powder in a shotshell.

    Probably shot close to 100,000 200gr H&G 68s in front of 5.6 to 5.9 gr of 231. Only stopped because I went to a Super.
