Triple 7 cost.

Because you use less Tripe 7 than pyrodex--the cost difference closes up. $15-$16 for Trip7 compared to $13-$14 for pyrodex. (at prices around here).

Because black powder is such a hassle to get were I live--$16 in gas, not to mention the time--I'm experimenting with the alternatives.

So far pyrodex is economically/performance-wise the best deal--but the smoke makes me cough like I've got black lung.

I know, shoot on windy days.
