They are a rip if you don't care about ignition characteristics. Pellets light faster, much more like BP. It's easy to hear the difference. I went to musket caps to try to get close to BP ignition, and it helps, but not as much as Black Powder does. Just sayin'. When I'm out burning powder for a lark, I shoot select or P, even some RS. But pyrodex isn't Holy Black as far as ignition goes. Cleaner, safer, yup. Easy to light, particularly in bent fire channels, nope.
