American Pioneer powder

I have not been able to find any pyrodex pistol powder locally, just like everthing else you can't get,. So I got a lb of this American Pioneer FFFG equivalent.

I used some the other day and it seemed to shoot just as well as BP or pyrodex. There is less fouling and residue than with pyrodex, way less than BP. It seems to make more smoke than pyrodex though, more like BP in that respect. My only complaint really is the grain size, which is basically some fairly large flakes. I have never used 2F powders, but I imagine this powder would be similar to something like 2F. It makes it a little harder to pour for me. I would also say that you are using a slightly smaller load of powder for the same measured volume because there will be more air space between the grains.
