I live in the humid south and have gone days without cleaning after using bp with no rust. Have gone nine days after using Pyrodex which has a worse rep than real bp does. No rust anywhere.
I don't know anything about Pyrodex, but I do know about both moisture and black poweder, and any combination thereof. You can call is BS all you like, but I have seen BP weapons form surface rust overnight when they weren't cleaned. And why in God's name would anyone let a weapon go nine days without a cleaning?
I think your weapons are just afraid to rust because they know you won't clean them.
