Here's some info on it.
It's not all that great to me, since it seems to vary quite a bit from lot to lot.

No, because it's inconsistant, and I don't like to experiment with high explosives close to my head.

I prefer to pay a little more for better, SAFER powders

Here's some more data:

for anyone else interested in this, i have passed on it. as bearfoot has put it, it is too inconsistent. its a problem waiting to happen.
