    Coco,
    Welcome to the forum.

    you found data for Commercial #5 ?
    OR
    you found data for AA #5 ?

    What do you mean "mix data" ?

    I found this on the web, it says "Cross with Accurate # 5". I don't have any experience with it.

    BR-5 Recently acquired. Brand new, current production. This is a double-based ball
    type powder, originally intended for 9x19mm ammo. Meters very consistently.
    Burning rate is similar to Hercules Unique, which data can be used. Additional
    data available on request. Clean burning with consistent results.
    This is new powder, not pulldown.
    $95/6# jug

    take a look 4-5 threads down by thumbcocker may help

    The production date is 2014. No official load data, some say use aa5, csb-5, 700x... little confused. Was going to use on 9mm and 12 gauge. YouTube has few video at well. Just wondering if anyone have use it here.

    The 700x thrown in there doesn't sound right, way faster than any other recommends that are all roughly unique speed powders.
