I have bought Schuetzen recently because of the GoEx situation, the Schuetzen seems to be what's available right now. I have noticed it seems much dirtier especially with heavier charges... In my .69 smoothbores it develops crunchy hard fouling rings in the bore and is quite hard to get the range rod down to run a patch, even when the patch is water soaked. I've got a couple stuck even when I switched to very thin patches. I never had this problem with GoEx. In rifled bores I don't notice the same level of hard fouling (patches are noticeably dirtier) but I lube the inside cavity and outside bands of the minie balls I use, so I suspect that's helping. The round balls in the smooth bore don't hold much if any usable lube so I think that's part of the problem. I still roll them in 50/50 beeswax/Crisco. Shooting a roughed up bare ball, no patch. I'm curious also on the burn rate vs Goex. I haven't been able to chronograph the loads but was wondering if it is producing similar pressure/velocity as my old GoEx loads. Has anyone tested these two side by side or know of any articles on the subject? I use 3F in the .54, .58 and .69 bore sizes.
