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.
