    John Boy, that entire post was enlightening but this sentence particularly caught my attention. I have to agree 100% and refine that even further by saying the first lot was the best of the Cartridge.

    I have had excellent results with OE in small cases, 25-20 in a re-chambered Rook Rifle and 44-40 in an Uberti '73 rifle. Along with paper patching the bullet, OE also gave good results in my old Reilly 500 BPE. Something I couldn't achieve with any other powder, including Swiss, without duplexing.

    I've been told this guy has powder cheap when bought bulk.

    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    I bought some of the Grafs 3F and have shot it. It shoots reasonably well for my purposes. I think Olde E is better and cleaner, but if you are plinking there is nothing wrong with the Grafs.
    When you care enough to send the very best, send an ounce of lead.

    Same reason as Winchester 231 and Hodgdon HP-38, same powder, same plant, same lot numbers, 231 cost more.
