    rp, I'm not familiar with your gun, but you've given me something new to chew on. This is the first time I've heard of a manufacturer advising NOT to use pyrodex. However, if they tell you not to, you probably shouldn't without finding out what the reason is.

    Pyrodex and 777 are both made by Hodgdon, so I fail to see a problem so far. 777 is a whole bunch easier to clean up after, but it's a whole bunch hotter than Pyrodex, so use caution.

    When in doubt, refer to the manufacturer's data...

    I would contact the maker of the gun for a clarification, just in case. Hate to see you have an oopsie, and the company tells you too bad! [8D]

    The company won't tell you anything.
    Austin Halleck is gone.
