Alliant new powder BE-86 for pistols !

This past summer Alliant released a new powder with a greater
power density than Power Pistol which at 40 percent has
the most nitro glycerin of any smokeless powder on the market.
To clarify, Power Pistol has the 40 percent. In Alliant's
newest load data for 165gr 10mm bullet, they use one grain
less of the BE-86 than the load for Power Pistol yet the
velocity for the BE-86 is higher ! This must be some really
potent stuff. BTW the 800 Hi-Score powder I think has
29 percent nitro glycerin.
Is anyone playing with this new BE-86 stuff yet ?

"BE-86" was modeled off Bullseye (hence the BE designator), "Power Pistol" was also modeled from "Bullseye" and was designated "BE-84" in the beginning from what I remember. Therefore the kernel size and shape may be similar to Bullseye or Power Pistol. "BE-86" is said to be slightly slower burning than Bullseye, and contains the flash retardant,

I have seen it in some of the pull-downs I've done as compared to sample pictures. But I am yet to get some for my own loading. I have been gathering data and studying it.
