NO that's alliant powder and I've seen NO data other than 12/28 gauge .

MOST of the powder producers ,are powder specific now days ( Makes people purchase MORE powder ) . Different from the old days Red Dot or Blue dot in this or that pistol charge . Unique as well as others still cross , Burn rate is what one needs too know ,along with single or double base mixture . Then " IF " one wanted to experiment proceed with the utmost caution .

Having formerly worked for Hercules Powder Company back in the early 70's ;

I DON'T recommend experimenting !. WHY ?. Because Powder Company's spend an enormous amount of resources Money and TIME ; Developing SPECIFIC POWDERS for SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS . While squeezing the MAXIMUM performance out of said powders and KEEPING JOHN Q PUBLIC SAVE WHILE DOING SO !.

I've been reloading ,along with cartridge wildcatting for 54 years , come last January !.
I've got Both eyes , Both Ears , Both hands #8 Fingers with two opposing thumbs !.
I survived VN demolition work ,manufacturing 80% Nitro industrial dynamite ,batching single and Double base powders .

There's a SOLID REASON for Reloading manuals , YOUR SAFETY !. Please Use them .

I haven't tried it but if you look at the burn rate, it's slightly slower than 231 and slightly faster than Unique so it would work pretty well in handguns.

Here's a ton of metallic loads:
