Fast Powder

I should re-state my question:
My daughter will be shooting a TC Cherokee @ 4H nationals.
.45 cal, 24" Barrel max charge allowed at the competition is 60 gr & must be patch & pall.
Because she also will be doing silhouette, I would like to get the velocity up as high as accurately possible to compensate for the light ball.
Thanks
Ed

    If it is warm, FFFg Triple Seven will give you a slight edge over equivalent weight pyrodex/BP. BH209 will not ignite well if at all in a sidelock; I don't know if you could duplex it over some BP to ignite it and get the velocity up some more, but it's probably not worth the complication and effort.

    Swiss 3f will be the fastest and probably the best accuracy as well.

    Triple 7 must be reduced in volume to produce equivalent pressures to black powder so, if you
    load the same by volume you will get more pressure/velocity BUT BE CAREFUL !!!.

    I think that it is about 8% faster. But don't take my word for it . Look on the 777 can or
    web site for loading instructions

    I expect that the TC should be able to handle it @60 grains???
    I will check the web site though.
    Good advice & thanks.
