Roughly how many rounds do you get out of a pound? Powders been tough to find but I scored 2 pounds of this before I left for the bush. Need to order projectiles but budget dictates that I only get enough at this point for the powder I have on hand. Having my 8lbs jug of bullsye and 3000 9mm projectiles stolen along with most of my other reloading gear this summer is like the gift that keeps on gving.. or the turd that won't flush.

Handy dandy chart


Don't forget to account for some spillage and loss.

around 1,700 rounds per pound depending on the heads used
4.0 grains
start low and work your way up
and do some searching on the web
dont take my word for it

124 gr Hard cast and 124gr Jacketed.. Just needed a ballpark figure. I'll gets actual loads worked out later when I have everything in front of me. Gonna put in an order for 3000 jacketed I think. I'll save the lead for summer time when I don't have to shoot indoors.

3.7 grains behind a 115 cast SWC is one of my favorite loads. I'd still be loading it but my bullet supply dried up.
