I have the chart that give loads per # of powder, but T/B seems to be a different critter. 6.5-7 grains of regular gun powder gives +- 900 to 1000 loads per #. Any one have any yield data on TRAIL BOSS ? thanks Jerry

7grain load =
437.5 grains per Oz. 437.5 X 16 = 7000

437.5 Div. by 7 grains 62.5 loads per oz.
62.5 X 9 = 562.5 loads per 9 Oz. can

TB is just like any other powder but fluffier. Therefore they sale it in 9oz quantities. Knowing the simple relationships:

7000 grains = 1 pound
16oz = 1 pound

You an do the math from there :) .

Thank you gentlemen, I am aware of the 7000 gr. / # but was not sure it would relate to a "fluffy" substance like T/B. So I guess a pound is a pound is a pound regardless of what it is. Okay this answeres my question.
