American Pioneer Powder is a loose, granular powder designed and created to be a sulfurless black powder replacement. American Pioneer Powder comes in 2 traditional granulations for all manner of cartridge and muzzleloading needs. Whether you are shooting patched round ball, a modern sabot load or a conical projectile, muzzleloading has never been easier! Used on a volume for volume basis for your traditional black powder loads, it will give you the same performance, velocity and accuracy without the messy clean-up and difficult follow-up reloading from black powder fouling. Cartridge loading will also give the same results. Basic loading instructions are to fill the case to the point where the seated bullet will very slightly compress the powder about 1/16" when it is seated and seat the bullet with a good crimp. No matter what type of black powder shooting you do, you will find you won't have the continual build-up of fouling that makes reloading difficult and can cause guns to bind up. And since clean-up can be done with a damp patch after a day of shooting, it will leave more time for shooting and fun! Shipped ground only.
