Any advantages for using this powder in .38 Special? I shot 3.2g of powder, 148g LWC bullet, and Winchester primer...felt like not much power and some powder didn't burn.

Seems to me that with the 148gr wadcutter, my load was always 2.5 gr Bullseye. There was a 700X load that worked ok also but don't remember it right off. Got 8# of pistol powder #6 from a friend that died and have been using it with 150gr semi wad cutters. #6 was discontinued years ago.

148gr wadcutters and Bullseye go together like peaches and cream.
