    The commercial factories use industrial powder that they purchase by the ton.

    It is NOT canister grade and varies significantly more.
    They work up a load, often measuring pressures, and then start the machinery up.

    I'm aware of that, but since they load at a rate of several hundred rounds per minute IIRC they have to use something that meters fairly well.
