    There is 7000 grains to a pound. FOR EXAMPLE ONLY: If you were loading each case with 4.5 grains you can load 1555 rounds.
    THIS IS FOR EXAMPLE ONLY.

    For me Bullseye powder go's the farthest (Load more bullets per pound).
    Especially in .38 Special.
     
  5. Yup, 7000 grains to the pound. On average, around 1500 rounds per pound.
    On lighter charges, it can be over 1750 rounds per pound.


    I'm getting 1944 rounds per pound out of my 38 special using Bullseye powder.

    In contrast, I'm only getting about 118 rounds per pound of powder from my 30-06.

  6. With my .50 AE loads, I get 250ish loads per pound of H110. I am gonna be switching to a different powder though.
