Hodgdon Triple 7 Blackpowder Pellets
777 powder pellets
Quality powder. The sad thing is the shipping was more than the powder, 28.50. I did not realize that when I ordered. I didn't have much choice though, I could not find the pellets in any store .

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.
