    Coop, ever try Hodgdon Pyrodex Powder ???

    Pyrodex powder burns cleaner and produces less fowling than black powder

    Re: Powder Valley

    Does Pyrodex make as good of skyrockets as black powder?

    Yepper I've shot it and have some more on order also. Seems to shoot round ball real well but doesn't have the hammer effect for the maxi's to get them to engage the rifling . Up here in Ore we have to use traditional with open fire control. So I can only use my T/C Hawken or Renegade. My 50 cal Hawken will be used this season.
    Trip 7 does cleanup easy but I don't have any problem with the old soap and hot water for the BP.
