Alliant Black MZ

Has anyone utilized this powder in their online muzzleloader? If so, is there swabing between shots and is clean-up as easy as advised? Any problems with rusting?

yes swabbing is a must as usual. The 209 primers is what causes the crud ring issues. Clean up is easy. You do realize this is rebranded American Pioneer/Jim Shockeys gold powder right? Neither powders are in production after the last fire they had.

Fouling build up at the breech end of my traditional sidelock with BLACK MZ

How all 5 lbs of my powder came. I had to empty the jugs and lightly break apart the clumps.

if you are shooting an inline muzzleloader with the proper enclosed 209 breech plug, Blackhorn209 is the best sub black powder available that truly does not need to be swabbed between shots.

I do have one pound that was purchased a while back but never used. Would be using it in a T/C Endeavor.

Thanks for the info, will use Buckhorn 209 instead.

Was looking for less clean-up.
