Bullseye Powder

Postby Poppop » 22 Sep 2017 17

I've been using Bullseye powder for many years now for .38 spec. I finally noticed that is STINKS. I mean STINKS. The smell is awful. If I were shooting indoors, I would probably be banned.
Has anyone else noticed it?

Bullseye is great for 9mm and likely others. It's Unique that sux horribly.

I'm not fancy nor has my home been threatened. I've never shot ANYTHING indoors.
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from goin' insane.

There are a handful of Unique smells that are gun related and to date the only one I find truly unpleasant is the ammonia type copper solvents . Spent powder just smells like someplace I'm supposed to be .

I haven't noticed any unacceptable odors from any of my casting, reloading or gun cleaning stuff, but I grew up in So. Central Los Angeles... 8-)

Plus, once when I was siphoning (stealing) some gas I choked, gagged and coughed some gas outta my nose. My smeller ain't worked quite right since... :?
