OK so I have been pulling down thousands of 6.5 X 55 Swedish red wood tipped “training” blanks. When I first received these “battle packs”, I expected to see flash powder in them but instead they contain what looks like cut flake powder only smaller than what we normally see in rifle calibers.
After doing some research, others around certain gun forums claim it is Gevärsexerciskrut 1, or also known as Rifle practice powder 1. Many have compared the burn rate to Unique and claim to have good results with it in light rifle loads for cast bullets and results equal to Unique when loading in handgun calibers.
Does anyone have any more specific details about this powder or is it just as elusive as it seems? There must be some sort of burn rate data or something regarding the design and composition out there somewhere.
Thanks in advance!
