While the black powder substitutes (Pyrodex excepted) give you a little leeway when it comes to cleaning guns after a shooting session, they are unforgiving when it comes to brass. Don't clean your cases and they'll be ruined in short order. I use American Pioneer FF in my trapdoors, Sniders and Martinis and follow what I believe is also the advised method for bp brass... take a jug full of warm, soapy water to the range. After firing, drop the empties in the jug. Once back home, you can clean the cases according to your preference... scrubbing at the sink, tumblers etc., etc. I use Balistol on my rifles' bores. It may smell somewhat, but certainly not as noxious as some of the stuff I used to uncork.
