I have used american Pioneer powders. They are much cleaner as advertised. I can't add for thaccuracy or consistancy, as I haven't tried them in anything other than a FLINCH-lock which I can't shoot worth a darn yet. Can't get used to the FLASH-pause-BANG yet.

    JMason, you should be using real black in your flintlock. You will shoot it better with less pasue. Use 4f in the pan and 2f with your load. I Assume its a 50 cal or bigger?

    Len, APP is good powder for inlines. I use the 2fg in my 45 cal knight but the APP powder is coarser than others. I would try both 2f and 3f if you have them. (Obviously not together!!!) They work great and you do not have to clean right away. But I still wouldn't leave it too long after shooting.

    The new Blackhorn 209 is the cat's *****! Real clean and accurate.
