          Comments about Hodgdon Pyrodex P Pistol Powder:

          Cleaner and harder hitting than blackpowder. No. 11 caps set it off just fine. Does'nt foul my 58 Remington like FFF. Can shoot longer before cleaning. More shots per pound too. It's a keeper.

                For smaller calibers and black powder pistols it is best to use the Hodgdon Pyrodex P Pistol Powder. If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us here at Gander Mountain and we will be glad to assist you.

              • A:

                I don't know that they call it "smokeless", but it is a "black powder" substitute. I use it in both my 1858 Remingtons and have had no trouble at all.

                A:

                That is one of the manufacture best selling points, the fact this item has a different formula (especially for pistols) that helps preserve the life and also not fouling it up.

                It's cleaner than blackpowder. I use both.
