Some of the black powder substitutes are also available in pellet form, which really speeds up the loading process. On the other hand, they are more difficult to ignite than black powder.
How many 50 grain Pyrodex pellets should I use?
A single 50/50 pellet may be used for a light target or small game load while two 50/50 pellets may be combined to provide a potent 100 grain equivalent load for big game.
What is a substitute for black powder?
Pyrodex and Triple Seven are two of the many black powder replacements. Both are available as granules and pellets. Use Pyrodex in the same amount as black powder, however cut your loads by 15% when using Triple Seven.
