    Greetings Black Powder Shooters:

    I've been reading a lot lately about the various black powders out there as I begin to gather components for reloading. I would appreciate any recommendations from fellow black powder shooters of how your powder of choice has performed. I expect I will experimenting with GOEX, Swiss, and a couple of others I have read about.

    After some research I suspect I will use Starline brass, Federal 215 Large Rifle Mag primers, #457125 Lyman 525 gr bullet lubed with SPG, and a John Walter vegetable fiber wad. I am leaning toward the Swiss just because I know top shooters have gotten good results.

    Well good people, what has worked for you?

    Best regards,

    Swiss Black Powder works well.

    Graf & Sons markets their own Black powder for a lot less than Swill and it's made by Schwarzpulver in Germany which is a reputable company.
