 So if you put the cover back on it seals out all moisture from getting in? My dad didn't want to break the seal on the container, thinking that if he opened it it would collect moisture through the cover.

I personally have not tried Shockey's gold but have tried most of the other "in-line" recommended powders like triple 7, pyrodex, etc. Yes, they are cleaner--yes they come in pellets, yes the gun cleans quicker---but, at the end to the day, I always go back to my old favorite that still shoots stronger and hits harder than anything else I have ever tried. My favorite is good old GOEX black powder and I shoot 100 grains in FFFG. I have not found anything that outperforms it. So it takes a bit longer to clean, that is part of the deal when you hunt hard! Don't let the triple F scare you, I found it recommended in one of the leading reloading books years ago and have stuck with it.

Thanks Sundowner, I'm not sure if my dad is a little neverous having never shot a black powder or what. But that was his excuse as to why we didn't need to shoot it that day. I'm going to a broadhead shoot tomorrow with him and I'll let him know.

I've used black powder for years, used the APP for the past few years.
If you are looking for something that makes loading and cleaning easier and faster this is the solution!

As with all of 'em, keep 'em dry or you'll lose yur top notch.

any body want a couple of cans of pyrodex?  after i had 2 loads of it foul i went to the pioneer,  shockeys is the same,  just a little more consistant granule size,  been using it 2 years now and only had one charge foul,  (too much oil on the wipe)  i will keep in mind the moisture question if i get back to alaska but here in colorado its not that big an issue.

I use the Gold Pioneer sticks/50 cal. Have not had any problems. I only use 2 sticks. The clean-up is great.
