Default American Pioneer Powder

has anyone had luck with this stuff?

My .58 won't shoot it worth a darn - I shoots pyrodex and Goex blackpowder just fine.

I haven't tried APP but it's supposed to be clean and reliable.

I tried 777 when they said that and was severely disappointed.
I stick to Pyrodex RS and P. I like boom and smoke!
Black powder is just to much of a pain to get.(No where local carries it)

I`ve used it and had no problems with it so far, but I`m hearing that it goes bad in the can in a year or so.

Default american pioneer powder

We tested american pioneer powder,triple 7,pyrodex,and black powder all side by side for accuracy,consistancy,speed,and fouling buildup. all rifles were exactly same and same setup. American pioneer powder proved to be clearly superior in all ways and is the only powder I'll use from now on.

I'm wondering if it's a a quality control thing - good batches and bad batched.

Looking at the actual powder the grain size seems to run from large gravel to pepper size bits.

I use it and am very happy with it, it dose everything it's suppose to do, and Is really clean burning, The down side is that stuff stinks to high heaven, if the wind is blowing back at ya, it's enough to gag a magot!!!

i have used Clean Shot, APP and JSG off and on since 2002. The Clean Shot pellets were nearly impossible to light in my guns even with 209 primers. Finally i loaded about five grains of granular APP and then the pellets. This did the trick, the granular ignited the two pellets, it was a very powerful load and very clean.

Last year i bought a new Encore. 50 caliber and tried JSG FFG. With 90 grains of JSG and the 250 grain SST in the tight fitting short black sabots, the gun would shoot 1 inch groups at 100 yards. Killed a deer at over 170 yards with this load and a hog at over 190 yards. JSG is a very clean powder and i will stick with it. Just sighted in my Encore for 110 grains of JSG and the 250 grain SST. Am now read for OK muzzleloader season.

Those of yall having problems-no offence but are you loading it like it needs to be loaded? What priming system, loose vs stick, and seating pressure are you using?
