I've used it for years in 12ga heavy shotgun hunting loads (1 1/4 & 1 1/2oz loads) and cast pistol loads. It runs out of steam with jacketed bullets (Blue Dot or 2400 gets higher velocities). It is a somewhat dirty powder with a bit more fouling around the muzzle and cylinder gap but not as dirty as Unique. I still like it. I would classify it as a medium burning powder. For light loads the faster powders will work better in shorter barrels but Herco can do what you want it to do with cast bullets.
