Its a success. the e3 works great. While not scientific, I loaded all 5 rounds into my judge. A factory round , homemade round , factory round till it was full. the homemade rounds had just as much "get go" as the factory ones. loaded to alliant specs for red dot minus 10%. They call for 1.550 OAL. I did 1.580.. Seem to hit lower than the factory rounds.
One of my local gun shops has been trying to sell me some of that stuff. I haven't tried it because of the lack of reloading data. Supposed to be a real cleaning burning powder.

You inspired me so today I tested some 9mm loads with e3. Just followed my work up with Red Dot and I would have to say performance is near identical, velocity and accuracy. Even loaded rounds back to back in magazine and could not tell difference with same weight charge. With that said I don't try to push a fast powder to a max load so not sure how it compares at max load. I will have to say it is clean. It is nice and bulky just might have to try for some reduced rifle loads. One thing nice is this stuff is on the shelf here and at good price.
