Hmmmm...I did notice that when I switched to pyrodex powder from the pellets, there was a distinct "lag" from primer ignition to chamber fire. Mind you, this was in fractions of a second but noticeable just the same. The powder worked flawlessly before and after that cylinder. It was just that one round of balls.
Q) will a desiccant packet in the pyrodex help keep it dry?
I have had nipple problems and am ordering the ones that have been suggested.
There has to be some way of salvaging this bottle of powder though.
damn...can't afford to just go out and buy a new one after every shooting weekend.
