I have an older Eclipse Magnum 50 cal I use Pyrodex in, pellets and loose. Both work well, can get 2-3 inch groups off hand at 100 yards, plenty good for deer. I'm sure I could do better monkeying with the charge but it's been good enough for me. Used Power Belt bullets in it, but not real impressed with them for the price. I hit a buck at 25 yards, went through both sides of the rib cage, going through bone both sides, zero expansion. But a half inch hole is large without expansion, haven't lost a deer I hit with it. I think I'll grab some lead and see how they preform. But haven't had any issues with Pyrodex in rifles or revolvers, good stuff and easy to find.
We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.
