Tried Shockeys and did not like it. Not as clean as they say and got very inconsistent groups.

I have been using American Pioneer Powder (Not Shockeys Gold) and I get great results. I have always heard that loose powder is more accurate than pellets for the fact that if you crush pellets you loose a lot of accuracy. But I have heard of a lot of guys/gals that use 777, as you can see from previous posts. Pyrodex is supposedly more corosive than APP and 777.
