What is Hodgdon Pyrodex RS used for?

Pyrodex RS is intended for use in percussion muzzleloading rifles and shotguns of all calibers. It is the most versatile powder in the Pyrodex family and has a wide range of applications. It burns cleaner and creates less fouling than blackpowder, as do all grades of Pyrodex.

How does Pyrodex compare to black powder?

While Pyrodex is safer and more efficient (in terms of shots per pound of powder) than black powder, the fouling level is comparable; Pyrodex is caustic and corrosive. When Pyrodex is utilized, the same cleaning lay routine as is used for black powder fouling must be used.
