Ramshot True Blue is a modern pistol powder suitable for moderate to heavy loads in many calibers.
Bottom line: 👍 Meters superlatively, nearly universal application in handguns, low flash.
- Very fine spherical granules (.0083 to .0165 inches in diameter) meter well
- Low spreads and standard deviations when fired
- Can be used in many different cartridges.
- Low flash. Even indoors with 454 Casull rounds going 1400fps
- Can be a bit messy, because the fine grains get everywhere.
- Despite the fine spherical shape giving very repeatable throws, there is an occasional “hangup” feel in the Redding 3BR — as if granules sometimes get cut.
Density (per manufacturer) 15.046 grains/cc ±3.6%; But Lee dipper chart says 14.6 grains/cc
