That picture that Jonathan posted made the Black MZ look as big as Kingsford Briquettes for the BBQ so I took my own pictures.

Here is MZ with a penny for comparison and then MZ on the bottom right with GOEX 2F on the bottom left and Goex 3F on the top left. Now it doesn't look so bad.

According to the Chrony results from this Youtube video, Black MZ was more potent than Goex 2F shooting a 300 grain .54 REAL bullet and 70 grains of each powder:--->>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?fbclid...5Q&app=desktop

i hunt with Black MZ exclusively.

In the past ten days i've killed two deer and a big boar hog with muzzleloaders using Black MZ powder. One deer was killed with a .50 caliber conventional muzzleloader firing patched round ball. The charge was 90 grains of Black MZ. The big doe and boar were killed with a .50 caliber Encore rifle using the 250 grain SST bullet and 120 grains of Black MZ.








Yep, that "kitty litter" works just fine.
