    In addition to more Swiss 3 F I just ordered some Olde Eynsford from Powder Inc to try.

    Yes it's been done many times. The discontinued Goex Express and Swiss had very similar velocity. KIK and Express when loaded to the same grains weight will shoot within 2fps or less of each other. Schuetzen also can gain good velocity. Sp far in the tests that individuals have posted the new Olde Eynsford is winning out in the velocity dept over all the other powders.
    All the powders are capable of match winning accuracy, it's just a matter of developing a load.

    Grafs and Powder Inc (the largest selection) both sell most brands of available blackpowder in less than case lots, and will mix and match brands in the same box, so either of those places are great for getting a good sampling of powder to find out what really will or won't shoot to your expectations.
