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.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
