    Bullseye is real fast burning powder, useful for light shot loads in 12 gauge shells. I would use Bullseye in 7/8 or 3/4 ounce 12 gauge loads at target velocities. Keep looking, you will find a load. Send them an email, they will send you a load.

    I sent a private message with a source for the info you inquired about. If you can't locate a copy, let me know. I can mail photocopies.

    There are two pages with data for paper Federals, Gold Medals, Remington Premiers, Peters Blue Magic, and AA.

    I have loaded thousands of 1oz loads with 16 grs of Bullseye with no problems.

    You could load over 10,000 38 special target loads with that powder. Seems a shame to use it for 12 guage. HMB

    I like the way you think.



    If someone wants a cheap powder for light 12 ga loads use Promo.

    Good powder for loading light target pistol loads, 4 gr bullseye pushing 200 gr semi-wadcutters and my .45 auto'll plop the empties out in a little pile right at my feet.

    Check the old Hercules manuals. I believe the loads for Red Dot and Bullseye were the same.

    Don,

    I understand your concerns. However my Hercules manual shows 3gr of RedDot and 3gr of Bullseye with the same ballistic info for 38 special. My suggestion was to check the manuals. I don't understand why you would tell someone to ignore that suggestion.
