    The 12.7 X 44 is more or less the same as a 50-70 Government...

    I would get either Hodgdon's Pyrodex RS or Trail Boss. I keep thinking I need another of these. An dealer buddy of mine has them and they are pretty reasonable. What brass are you using?~Muir

    I have done well with 11mm Mauser, 45 Dutch Beaumont, 577 Snider, 303 British (Martini Metford) and various combustible cartridge Sharps loadings and handgun cartridges. I miss Pyrodex CTG. It worked better than any others for me; especially in the Snider. I also gave Pyrodec up in the larger capacity 45's and kept to smokeless. I don't shoot straight black powder anymore.~Muir
