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.

Well you had me worried about the powder going off when it was cold but last night it was about -10 below and at last light I took my fist shot at a deer. went off perfect I just missed crazy.gif. I use shockey gold and can say works for me!! I will just have to brave the crappy cold weather some more confused.gif.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
