I've been looking at powders for my future BPCR and see in the different forums where the majority of shooters are using either 1.5f or 2f in their .45-70's and .45-90's.

I've heard that some powders create a harder fouling than others.

For the folks here that compete (even if it's with yourselves grin ) what is your preferred powder size and manufacturer?

Thanks,

Ed

Swiss 1.5 in .40-82, .45-70, and .45-90. Keeps it simple.

Right now, I'ld say if you're shooting a 45-90 then KIK 1.5 is a good route to take.
If the cartridge is 45-70 then KIK 2f is the way to go.

2f KIK across the board.

If you want top accuracy, Swiss 1.5 fg is still getting it done and is the clear favorite.

I still have a fair amount of GOEX Express FFG. Per advice from an experienced fella wid a 44/90 I'll be gittin' a chitload of KIK 1.5 . My 45/110 likes the FFG.

I've had good luck with Swiss 1.5 in my 40-65.

Thank you, Gentlemen (yes, even you, Jim! grin ).

I see that Graf & Sons carries Goex & Swiss (Swiss is SPENDY!!! eek ) but I don't know of a source for KIK. Any suggestions?

You get what you pay for. Don't run second rate powder in a high dollar rifle just to save a few bucks. It is not worth your time and effort.
