Default 777

I use the 777 pellets. Two pellets with a 240 gr xtp bullet works well for me.Easy cleaning no rotten egg smell.

Diehard fan here using 2-50gr 777 pellets with 250 gr TC Shockwaves. Cleanup is a breeze with outstanding groupings. I heard the company has good quality controls with the individual pellet weights so variation is minimized. Only way to really know is to weigh on a gram scale. If you smash the pellets in the process of seating the bullet then you will have mixed results in groupings. I know a guy who smashes the bullet down so hard you would think the breech plug would come flying out the other side. Hard to tell but you gotta think that the poor little pellets are now powder.( love tap to seating point and mark ramrod) The guy ends up shooting all over the place. For me loose powder is a hassle with too much weight variation. Never tried Shockey.

I agree as well, 777 works great and less hassle

Can't help much here as I still use more black powder than anything else. Flintlocks still prefer the old stuff!

I have been using the clean shot for many years and it's been working well. Couldn't ask for an easier clean up.
