Swiss burns a little cleaner but it's still black powder and dirty. 60gr of Swiss would probably still have a bit more fps. I hesitate to say 55g but that might be the right answer.

Yes, you can use much less Swiss to equal Goex. Which helps offset the $10 lb more that Swiss costs over Goex. Swiss still comes out more expensive.

I think brushing would be more important for those who shoot lead conicals. It's the only time i've felt a need to use a brush. Soap and water flushing is all I needed when shooting a PRB.
