Re: Triple 7 corrosive?
VH, after reading your reply, I went to the link, and then to several sites, Midway, Natchez, and Cabela's. It is made more expensive by the hazmat fee, and a bottle only contains (43) 100 grain charges.
I don't have a centerline muzzleloader, and it appears that it is not for sidelock rifles, even with a 209 nipple, which used to be available. It does appear to be ideal in the .45-70, but I can stay with smokeless in that one.
I am going to see if anyone locally has it, and maybe avoid most of the hazmat fee, and then try it in a Walker replica revolver if I can find nipples for it. I always enjoyed shooting the old trash-burners, but haven't done it for years because of other priorities. I'm way out of touch with B/P technology.
After posting, I read a lot of reviews, and posts on other threads. A LOT of shooters have found the 777 to be corrosive, along with the other substitutes I was considering, and one reviewer of the Blackhorn said it stained and corroded his .45-70 brass.
Thanks for getting me off to a good start.
