Re: Black powder vrs smokeless

Not heard of it. What would be the purpose?

There are Smokeless powders out there that burn slower than Trail Boss but I personally have not found them or tried anything else after I started loading with Trail Boss.

Some research on Powder Manufacturer's Web Sites may be in order.

Safe accurate loading is a must with Antique weapons. I personally use two loading blocks when loading smokeless powder in the 45-70 cases. Prep your cases & places in one block. As you add the powder to the case, MOVE it to the second block. This will insure that you do not accidentally double charge the load. This would be a BAD thing to do.

You do not get to go past go or collect $200.00.
