45 firing

Lots of unburned propellent spewing from the muzzle.  Reminds me of when I was experimenting with Blue Dot powder during my reloading days.  That was some filthy stuff, always leaving parts of my gun black from residue.  I remember the grey cloud of dust and smoke that would pop out in front of the barrel every time I fired.

Still, it keeps selling.  Someone must like it!

    I believe Blue dot is mostly used for Shotgunning.

    It’s a relatively slow burning powder. What were you using it in?

    I had that problem when I tried VN340 in a 4.4″ Sig P220. In a 5″ 1911 it’s apparently just fine, but in the shorter Sig barrel it was belching enormous fireballs because of all the powder that didn’t get a chance to burn before it blew out the end of the barrel.

      Various handguns with 4 inch barrels. I only bought one can of Blue Dot, and switched to Accurate #5 because it was so versatile.
