      Have to agree with you Jim, I can remember when people ran away from Bullseye in droves due to reports of detonation with small charge loads and it flashing across the top of the charge therefore not "burning" as such. So 30 years or so on, we're still using Bullseye and still the same charge weights, I haven't heard of a gun blowing up in oooohhh how long?? There definitely is a difference in velocity spread from first shot to subsequent shots, all due to powder placement. I have tested countless rounds fired over a chrono with load loaded in the horizontal position in relation to rounds loaded in the vertical position against first shot vertical to subsequent horizontal shots. Yes, less air space is good for consistent velocities with small powder weights, the bulkier the powder negates the issue. Just a personal powder preference, adapt and overcome....

      Irish-PPC, I am one of those australians using the rounds in question. 38spl case with 2.1g of Bullseye and a 100g SWC sunk 3mm down in the case is my fave. I am getting fantastic accuracy out to 50yds with minimal recoil, as with this discussion thread I find that I get no unburnt powder and the velocities are extremely consistent.
