The pellets (IMNHO) are just a gimmick. It might be nice to keep a few in a sealed, air/water tight tube in case your loose powder gets wet, or to make a quick loading second shot when you're shaking from the adrenalin dump you got taking the first shot on a monster buck or bear though. (EZ Loaders work pretty good under those circumstances too). Dropping 2 or 3 pellets down the tube takes a lot of the fun out of black powder shooting & it's WAY too expensive to use them all the time. Use the powder with confidence, but remember that it is equal to BP by VOLUME, NOT by weight.
