it burns slower
it burns quicker
it is water-resistant
it is more explosive
The in­tro­duc­tion of brown powder, which burned less rapidly than black powder, allowed to use longer barrels, which resulted in greater ac­cu­ra­cy. Slow­er-burn­ing powder de­creas­es firing stress­es, allowing guns to last longer and to be man­u­fac­tured to tighter tol­er­ances.
