Mike,

Thanks for the info. I actually heard about the stored old lots originally with regard to Unique. And these would likely have been the original pre-Du Pont Unique, because something was said about the samples being over 100 years old. It seems unlikely those big flakes were ever waste, anyway, though the raw material might have been recycled from finings? Do you know anything about that?

Since military 230 grain .45 ACP hardball loads of 5.0 grains of SR 7970 are matched essentially identically by 5.0 grains of Bullseye, I have often wondered if Bullseye was used to develop final versions of the round? Perhaps J.M.B. used the earlier version of Bullseye in his original 200 grain load? Interesting stuff.
