Yea, that's what I read on a muzzleloading forum. It seems you need a tight sabot and got to use the full blown 209 primers, not the 777 designed primers. The claim is there no crud ring like 777, thus no swabbing between shots.Also, it doesn't attract moisture like 777. Maybe some one in the Nashville area will have some soon so I can give it a try.

Midsouth Supply in Clarksville has it. I have already shot up one bottle of it and have ordered and received two more. It performs as advertized. I'm using it in a Knight DISC Elite .45 and it requires a good tight fitting saboted bullet. Very good stuff. I like it....so far. Cleans up with Hoppes no 9.

I am fairly certain that Bass Pro has it, because Sportsman's Warehouse has it in Memphis. As far as I know, Sportsman's Warehouse is a Bass Pro store.
