American Pioneer PowderTM
2f and 3f Powder
Black Powder Replacement
CLEAN * DEPENDABLE * CONSISTENT * NO SULFUR STINK EASY CLEAN-UP * EASY IGNITION
Looking for a clean burning gunpowder to feed your frontstuffer? Need an alternative for your Old West cartridge gun that won't leave fouling building up shot after shot until it seizes up? Would you like to clean your bore with nothing more than plain water? Are you tired of the smell when you burn black powder? If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, this powder is for you!
Manufactured by American Pioneer Powder, this powder brings you the performance and clean burning results that you have come to demand in your muzzleloading and black powder cartridge needs. It is a volume for volume exchange for black powder, giving the same results for the loads you have developed, including the smoke, but without the fouling and corrosion. No lubes are needed, and in fact should be left out of your loading, other than the normal lube contained in the lube grooves of your bullet. And clean-up is a snap, allowing you to even use tap water on a cleaning patch. In addition, it is shipped and stored as a smokeless powder, making it much easier to ship and store. Many areas have outlawed black powder buying and/or storage entirely or have made it more difficult and expensive.
This product burns so clean that shot after shot can be loaded without the fouling build-up that is expected with other products. I have left personal firearms uncleaned for up to thousands of rounds and the fouling never does build up! (Brass cartridge cases DO need to be cleaned right after use, as the nitrate salts will cause discoloration and/or corrosion when combined with the brass. This can be as simple as a soak in detergent/water mixture.)
It is available in two traditional granulations, 2f and 3f. Loading is simple - for your frontstuffer, just measure the same volume as you have been using, or that your rifle maker recommends, pour your powder down the bore and seat your projectile. No compaction or compression is needed beyond seating against the powder. Don't use lubes, grease cookies or lubricated wads. That will only CAUSE fouling! For cartridges, fill the case to the point that the bullet, when seated, will compress the powder SLIGHTLY, approx 1/8". Seat and crimp. That's it!
