Why not swab ? I dont use 777, but ive read that you need to, just like you do Pyrodex.

I use it in my CVA Optima and shoot 3 times before I run a patch thru it. I set it up to were I could shoot and reload it quickly and not worry about it. After 3 shots it gets harder to push the sabot all the way down.

At 100 yds all three will touch.

My 45 encore would not because it wasn't sighted in with a clean barrel, but the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th shots were all next to each other.

You may have one of those guns where you will have to decide if it likes a clean or dirty barrel. I sight all mine in with a fouled barrel. Just like tonight as I load for Sat. morning I will shoot just a 15 grain load of powder (no bullet) thru mine to dirty the barrel then load it to hunt. I do this with both my Hawkins and my wife's wolf before loading to hunt. Go thru the same process at the range when sighting them in before season. Reason as both our guns like a fouled barrel. But on the other side have owned a couple that like clean barrels. Get 3 shots then thows em. Can't help ya much with the 777, my guns and I don't like it. There is a lot of good advise and opinions on here, but in the end you need to get some range time and figure your gun out.
