What does 6.8 grains of smokeless powder look like?

Josh's load:  6.8 grains of CFE Pistol
If you look closely you will see at least three "species" of powder.  Manufactures of smokeless powder have the resources to blend several powders of different burn rates to produce a longer, flatter "peak" pressure trace.  Kids DO NOT try this at home.  Not only must the powders be precisely blended, they must not separate during handling.
