Goex vs Schuetzen

I had an opportunity to chronograph my TC Hawken with a .36 caliber Green Moutain roundball barrel 28 inches long.

Hornady 000 buckshot, .350 diameter, 65 grain, patched with .020" teflon coated patching. Barrel wiped between shots with one cleaning patch dampened by Windex followed by a dry patch.

2.5 cc of powder were used, I was using a Lee powder measure calibrated in cc to measure the charges.

The chrono screens were about 20 ft away from the muzzle.

Goex.

1601
1620
1629
1667
1662
average 1635

Schuetzen

1609
1631
1649
1678
1658
average 1645

It looks like the two powders are pretty much interchangable, with only a five shot strings to compare, the difference between the two may be a statistical anomally.

P.S. Both powders were fffg, forgot to mention that.
