Black Powder Alternatives?
I am going to get back into shooting my muzzleloaders and was wondering about some of the newer black powder alternatives. Years ago, when I first got into BP shooting the new rage was Pyrodex. It supposedly was a lot cleaner burning, ignited better, and clean-up did not require all the usual hot, soapy water regimen as soon as you got home from the range. Unfortunatley, I personally did not find that to be the case. I found that Pyrodex didn't really perform all that differently from the GOEX FFFg black powder I was using at the time. It did a good job, but was no better in any respect. I am now hearing great things from some sources about Triple-7 and the (I believe it is) Shockey's Gold. At the same time, however, I am also hearing from some sources (much fewer though mind you) that these new ones are no better than regular black powder or Pyrodex. What do you guys think?
