Ballistic results for this propellant show it to be highly versatile, with low residue in a myriad of pistol cartridges. It has similar burn rate to Winchester 231, Hodgdon Titegroup®, and Accurate No. 2®.
This propellant can be used in virtually all pistol cartridges, and 12 gauge shot shell target loads. A fine grain spherical propellant, it meters extremely consistently with volumetric chargers. When used with certain shot shell reloading machines, it is recommended that a PC-PB-2 Powder Baffle be installed to ensure proper machine/propellant interaction.
Due to the gas generation rate of this propellant, loaders can achieve high velocities with .45 Auto, .38 SPL, and .45 Colt and similar low-pressure cartridges. This propellant will also enable cycling and nominal velocities in high-pressure semi-automatic firearms chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, .380 Auto, and others. Additionally, this propellant can be used for reduced loads in virtually any revolver cartridge, whether magnum or standard.
Clean Shot is a canister form of Explosia bulk propellant D032-02.

As with any propellant and load combination, a minor change to any of the components of the test load CAN result in significant shift in ballistic performance. This shift can cause unintended high pressures, and result in injury or death. Therefore, Shooters World LLC, nor the manufacturer of this propellant take no responsibility for the intentional or unintentional misuse of this product. The charge weights and results noted within are not recommended, either as a starting nor completed load. They are shown merely as an indication of potential performance in one test load, shot by CIP standards.
