    Pros/Cons Goex vs. Triple 7

    I have only used Goex black powder in my flintlock and percussion for the past 10 or so years. I have heard it is less fouling. Has any used Triple 7 that can tell me their experience with it? Many, Many Thanks!

    I don't think it will work in the flintlock unless you dump about 20gn of black down first to prime it. That is what Hornady recommends. I use 777 in my percussions and it works great. Goex in the flintlocks.

    Hey Russ, which are you referring too? I am talking about using the loose powder and not pellets.

    This is off Hogdons web site.

    Flintlock: To insure proper ignition in flintlock systems, 5 grains of FFFFG priming powder should be placed into the bore prior to loading the main charge of Triple Seven or Pyrodex. Consult the loading data in this brochure to determine the proper charge for the caliber firearm used and the chosen projectile. The main powder charge should be reduced by 5 grains to compensate for the addition of the priming powder. While holding the firearm vertically, slowly pour the measured charge of Triple Seven or Pyrodex into the barrel. Seat the projectile firmly against the powder. Make certain that there is no airspace between the powder and the projectile.
    I never tried it I figured it kind of defeated the purpose of the easy clean up.
    I only use the loose powder in my in lines and side locks. It works great in them.
    I never tried the pellets I'm too cheep. But my buddy uses them in his in line and he likes them.
