Sorry if I over simplified but I go from the basics just to be sure. I appreciate when people do that for me. The Select grade didn't really show any advantage over RS to me in the smaller pistol caliber cases. My best accuracy and least fouling came from using the pellets or slightly reduced loads of pyrodex P under a dried out wonder wad. I've used these methods at EOT, Winter Range, and Mule Camp in varying climatic conditions. So my point of view is shooting targets within the context of a match without being unduly hampered by fouling induced gun failures. Shooting from within prop buildings with even these loads you notice quite a concussion. The hits on target are sharp and the velocity is such that the hit comes while the boom is still rolling. The .454 case should give you a load that would be very effective on game, too strong for SASS.
