photie links  CBA to do them individual but used the gunpoint from instarmac  
the bag was 5kg smaller than easipoint but overall i would rate them the same to use
20kg   of gun point did  exactly 2M2 of brickwork albeit with very big perpends and beds and raked out to 25mm

so if estimating for BWK i would allow 10kg of pointing mix per metre squared

cheers

speed mike
took me roughly 2 hours to rake it out with diamond mortar grinder,cant recommend these enough for chasing,the blade is about 8 mm wide by 110m
then to point the lot took about  4 hours which i reckon is faster than using a normal trowel pointing trowel combo
especially as the joints were raked out deep
my only concern was that it is very grey
plus i wanted to give it a try :)
