Good stuff! Occasionaly a stick will need the ramrod to seat it in the chamber but accuracy appears to be equal regardless. I've tried it in my in-line as well as my side-lock with good results (1-3" @ 100 yds.). I'm curious about all the air space in the chamber behind the bullet/patch - doesn't that add up to questionable pressures? I will next try the loose version to see if I can tighten up the groups.

Not for me!

Not accurate in my rifle for some reason.
The sticks will not slide down the bore on their own, they have to be pushed down with the rod.

Not accurate in my rifle for some reason.
The sticks will not slide down the bore on their own, they have to be pushed down with the rod.
I can't deal with the feeling of those sticks grinding their way down the bore wheather it is doing any damage or not.

Pros

  • Accuracy
  • Durable
  • Easy Maintenance
  • Easy To Use

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Hunting
    • Shooting Ranges

    This is the best powder ever made! I have tried all the rest and they don't hold a candle to American Pioneer or Jim Shockeys Gold. I have read some of the comments about how they can't hold a pattern or keep there barrel clean but in my "American made" rifles they shoot any bullet Awesome and clean up at the end of hunting season with ease no matter how many times you shoot it! Try it! All my friends and family use it, you can too!

      I use these sticks in my CVA Accura V2 and they are great! A lot cleaner than pyrodex and blackhorn. Triple 7 comes in a close second. Never had a failure to fire. Anyone who says any different don't know what they are talking about. Thirty seven years ago I used Goex blackpowder. Then Hodgdons pyrodex. American Pioneer Powders Jim Shockey's Gold was a life saver! Thank you Jim!

        The best powder out there.I was hesitant at first but glad i did switch from 777,although Hodgdon triple 777 was good.If you want accuracy and a cleaner barrel this powder is for you.If you say otherwise it's because you can't shoot a black powder riffle.Better buy yourself a pellet gun.lol

            This product is unbelievable. I put a new scope on my TC Omega sighted it in and was surprised that after 6 shots went to swab it out and there wasn't any black soot in the barrel. After shooting it another 6 times cleaned it up with soap and water no sulpher smell or soot. Would highly recomend this powder.
