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

Re: Fast Powder

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.

Re: Fast Powder

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

Re: Fast Powder

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