This is probably an obtuse non-question question but when I was doing some load testing the other day and I loaded a stick powder and a flake powder. The stick powder, in the case of the .308 and .270 that loaded, seemed to be quite a bit more accurate. Quite a bit is not like inches but groups were visibly better. I got to wondering about that. Is it just an anomaly of the load / caliber that I was working on or does stick powder have some inherent property that makes it burn more consistently?
I have and load all kinds of rifle powders so this isn't some kind of mission to lock myself into one type of powder. I'm just curious.
