I'll never use another pellet. They are faster and easier to use. But as hard as I seat my bullet I'll bust them. As far as powder. I used to use 777 but has since switched to bh209. It burns cleaner and judging by kick it's a lot faster. Haven't really shot enough to give a good review tho

I am brand new to muzzleloaders, ive been using whitehotts pellets which was the manufacturers recomendation and for the free speed loader tubes that come in very handy. Im starting to think that some of my grouping issues is from the pellets and will try bh209 after reading numerous reviews. I seem to have A LOT of residue/unburned powder left over after each shot when they claim to be hotter and cleaner burning. They also clog my easy release beeech plug very easily. Im new but I dont think that these pellets should be doing this.

Still using the pyrodex I bought when I first started muzzle load hunting several years ago. I bought a couple of jars of it and still have around a 1/2 jar left. Can`t see wastin it and can`t find nuffin I need to blow up. Also have a jar of fffg for my pistols. also have about 1/2 jar of clean shot which ain`t no cleaner than pyrodex.
