jim shockey gold blackpowder

Has anyone else tried this stuff. Tried to shot a doe the other day when it was about 5 above and the powder didnt ignite. So triple 7 is loaded.

Boy prior to this post I've heard nothing but rave reviews for this powder. One guy I hunt with can't brag it up enough...

i have heard of nothing but great things about it. however, i prefer the triple seven pellets instead. they fit the barrel better. shockey pellets are long and skinny, hence leaving more open space, which leads to a touch less distance the bullets head down the barrel. also, new gun, or freshly cleaned, ALWAYS fire at least one primer without a powder charge. the hot flash will burn any oil, and blast any gunk out of the flash hole.

i used to have a problem with the powder not igniting after a fresh clean job. i fire two primers after each cleaning, and haven't had a problem since.

My friend got 2 bottles out the AP sticks and he does not like them because they crunch down and sometimes leave a air space. and put the round all over the place.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
