I've just picked up my second muzzleloader. It's a Thompson Center Hawken. My first one was a CVA Bobcat,which I haven't shot for a few years. Back then, I was useing Pyrodex powder. I'm now looking at Pioneer's Jim Shockey Gold in FFF.
I was wondering if I could get some pros or cons on the either powders.
I will be hunting whitetail with it. Would also like to shoot a black bear and my big dream..a bull elk. I carry the powder horn and a possible pouch with me also. (one speed loader, just in case)
