Best Answer

The fine grain powder upgrade in 'Sid Meier's Pirates!' increases the range of your cannons.

This is good for firing at deadly enemies from a distance, since their shots are least accurate the further away they are, unless they have this upgrade too. It can also be useful if the wind speed is against you in the battle where you may not be able to get the enemy ship in range.
