Alliant Black MZ

Recommended Posts

I just got two cans of Alliant Black MZ, has anyone used this and what is your experience with this.

Also I have been looking for Winchester AA light powder it gives loads that duplicates the feather light shell. Did Winchester discontinue this powder, I really like it.

Alliant Muzzle MZ: I use it for out-of-town matches as it is not very hydroscopic and does not rust my shotgun. It is fairly coarse. I find it comparable to APP FFg. Until recently Sportsmans Warehouse sold it for $10 a bottle. I stocked up.

I use BlackMZ all of 2016. Used it in 32-20, 38 Special, C45S and shotgun loads.

 

I found it like cheating. The guns ran clean with no goopy black powder lubes. Cleans up easy with no rush. Cases clean easy with just a soak in water, let dry, then vibration cleaner.

 

It appears to be stronger than black. I kept cutting my charges down and still had plenty of power.

 

Sportsman Warehouse had it for $9.95/lb but have been out for months.

Basically Black MZ is just repackaged APP. After months of $10.00 per bottle prices the local Sportsman's Warehouse hasn't had any for the past several weeks. I hope the gravy train hasn't ended.

I got some of it a couple of years ago as a gift.

 

I wrote to the manufacturer to ask if it is safe to use in antique cartridge revolvers. I was told absolutely not. I have not used it for anything.

Great sub IMHO! Have been using it in 45 Colt, 45 CS and shotgun. Oh yea......works well in my small cannon as well!

+1 Same here at our local Sportsmans Warehouse!

Gave it a try in a 45-120 Q-Sharps. A full charge with 1/16" compression and one milk carton wad under a 535g Layman and no Greese cookie shoots 2" five shot groups at 100 yards without swabbing between shots. I have not ran it over the Chrony yet but it feels more energetic than Pyrodex or Goex.
