FIRST UP, I AM LEARY ABOUT THE holy black. spinal surgery left fingertips numb. I have a large stock of BP given to me by those who tried it and didn't like it. I read 20 year old Venturino & other books that say smokeless puff loads in a BP cartridge gun may be safe, but prematurely wear out guns. I have 2 Merwin Hulberts in 44W and a 75 Remington in 44Rcf. I've been out of the game since '09 and need to find if there are BP substitutes which are clean and non-corrosive to use in my shooters, Pistols and rifles or is there a SAFE smokeless. I am clueless on how to load 12 Ga shells using thick gold Remington hulls with BP. Will "normal" pink or white wads work? Where to find light loads should I try to go black. I would rather use a cleaner substitute or something like Clays or Trailboss powder. TOTALLY ignorant of BP other than shooting my '51 Ubertis. Good to be back in the saddle, but don't know about new powders since 2009. Thanks for any input. Mark "Dirty Doc" Zachary
I have some left over 2400 powder and would like to use it up instead of just pouring it out and burning it. I tried looking on the alliant site but did not find any info. If anyone has some usable loads for 405 gr cast bullets or 400 gr jacketed bullets, I would be grateful for a pm with them. I am loading for a Marlin 1895, so they do not have to be super mild. I normally load 3031 in my 45-70's, but I have this powder and I guess I am to cheap to not use it. Thanks in advance. Jimmy Reb
