You may not be figuring correctly. I kind of thought the same thing before I really thought about it and did the math. Here's the rough math for 45 Colt loads:
~5.7 cents for 30 grains of FFFg GOEX
~2.6 cents for 8 grains of Alliant Unique smokeless
You have to recall that in general fewer grains of smokeless powder are used versus holy black for the same punch. Your mileage may vary.
