I have a bottle of Black Canyon Powder substitute for black powder, but the label does not state an "FFG" equivalent, and says the powder must be weighed, not measured volumetrically. I'll write the company for loading data, but what's your experience with this powder? I load everything from .36 cap and ball revolver to large bore flintlock rifle and pistol... What's its' best use?:confused:

Black Canyon has been absent from the shelves for a few years. If the bottle you have has been opened it has probably deteriorated.
I tried this stuff a few years back and it goes bad very quickly once exposed to air.
The stuff sucks moisture out of the air like a sponge. If you are looking for a good BP alternative I suggest Hogdens 777.

Best Regards,
