    We just got our first serious rain since June 26 yesterday so the monsoons are coming. I will keep you informed.

    I tried it in my Lyman and it did not do well, but, that is probably due to my rifle and load. I shoot 450gn PP conicals that do not have any friction when seated. The mfg of BlackMZ suggests a good compressed charge. I can put a veggie wad down and put pressure on the powder charge, but, there is no compression once the bullet is 'gently' seated. So, I get larger groups, ie, 5-6". OK for short range hunting, not so good for me.

    I've been using it for the last 3 years in my inline. It works fine, I've shot several deer using it. I haven't or would use it in my flintlocks.
    It does burn very clean and clean up is a breeze.

    FFFg in the pan and under the main charge of substitute?
    I've read that people do that to stretch their more expensive black supply.
    But, I'm leery of duplex loading... probably pointless caution on my part.
