Premeasured and compressed .777 pellets for quick and easy loading
I've used more gun powders to find which was the best. I found this gun powder to be the worse. You can get maybe 2 shots off, then you have to clean the gun. You might be able to get 3 shots, but the 3rd one will be hard to seat bullet. I have found the best powder to be American Pioneer Powder. It's all I use now. I have shot as many as 10 shots with no problems using American Pioneer powder.

Never an issue
I've been useing Triple 7 pellets ever since I bought a new CVA back in 2008 and i've had great results with it,never an issue. Never had the "crud ring" I hear folks talk about.And I shoot the hornady FPB bullet and I can shoot up to 5-10 shots without cleaning between shots and I still get great accuracy and still easy to load.I've shot alot of this powder,and just recently tried to switch to Blackhorn 209 powder,I shot almost a full jug of it and I just can't justify switching to a loose powder and pay more when it doesn't give me any bettery accuracy than the pellets do. And I tried from 80grs on up to 120grs and it never gave me accuracy that matched the Triple 7 pellets do,and I tried 3 different bullet combos too. I thik the key to all blackpowders are that you MUST clean your muzzleloader thourghly after every time you take it to the range and shoot it. Take care of your muzzleloader and it'll take care of you and perform when you need it.

worst powder idea EVER
Bought a brand new Encore Pro Hunter...first time ever firing and I used these pellets...2 50 grain pellets so 100 grain. after 6 shots, cleaning with solvent and dry patch after every shot, my breech plug and barrell were so fouled I snapped 4 primers to get it to go off...it hang fired and I took breech plug out and cleaned thoroughly at the range then proceeded to load loose Triple 7 and shot 25 more times with no problems. What could be the issue? THE GLUE! it is nasty and will never put it in my gun again or recommend to anyone I know or a complete stranger! Stick to loose powder...if you wanted loading to be easy you should shoot a cartridge.

I don't know of any reason why they wouldn't fire but they probably won't give you the same kind of performance a regular FF powder. The pellets are made to be used with 209 primers which are hotter and are fired into the middle of the pellet.
maybe, but you run the risk of them not staying seated against the powder unless you are shooting a ball with a wad to secure it. the down and dirty is that it will not be nearly as accurate and could pose potential dangers. i would recommend using the proper ammunition.
You can get an adapter to convert you #11 to 209 primmer in most guns. But make sure you read you gun owners manual to make sure you can handle a magnum load if you plan on putting in three pellets or it will blow up in your face. The #11 will not ignite the pellets.
yes, you drop however many pellets you're shooting down the barrell then load bullet and seat it. However, a problem you run into with these is that if you seat the bullet too hard it crumbles the pellets and the shot accuracy can be off. plus the glue is very very dirty inside your gun
