APP powder

I opened a container of ffg  APP powder why is it so clumpy and powdery ? Also  22 gr brings me to the base of a 250 grain 45 cal bullet in a Colt case. Does this all sound correct.

 

Thank You

Yes that's the way it is, shake it up to get rid of the clumps. Is that by weight or volume? At the base of the bullet very slightly touching is the correct load.

I know saltpeter came from urine and they mined bat guano for explosives, so I was a little confused.

The older production of APP was very clumpy but the latest bottles I purchased seemed a lot better. Only shoot APP a couple times a year so maybe I have been lucky. I prefer real black so not much experience . DC

Just a note of curiosity - the last 3 lbs of 3F APP I got were actually 2 F. Incorrectly labelled containers.
