I am not rightly sure of Pyrodex and other BP substitutes, but the real Black Powder residue is hygroscopic- it attracts water ..... even out of the air.

Water will rust steel, especially when combined with the BP fouling.....
That's true but it's not an immediate reaction. I sometimes go two or three days before cleaning after shooting Pyrodex and it has a worse rep than black.
