Use of brown powder was one of the major naval artillery improvements of the late 19th century. What was its advantage over black powder?

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.
