A few posters on other forums tested clear shot, pyro and 777 with the same load, bullet and rifle. The slowest bullet speed/energy was with clear -- the next higher was pyro and 777 was highest. If you're shootin' between 50-75 yards, you should do fine. If it's 75-150 yards, your clear shot will not match pyro or 777 in energy & speed.
As long as you're happy -- that's all that matters.
HI PJ- Ijust shot at the Grand Valley ML 3 day shoot this last weekend. I used 777 2fpowder for the woods walk in my .54 T/C Renegade. After about 12 shots ,wet patch with cleaner/lube and dry patch with cap snap to blow out the crud every 5 shots, I STILL had delayed or hang fires :evil: Using 2f Goex and the same cleanin steps Idon't have this frustration. 777 is pretty expensive to be giving the unsure performance I've experienced. Oh yeah, I use a Knight red stainless nipple to help ignition using standard CCI caps incase you're wondering. Hope you have better luck
Gave two lbs of Clean Shot to my buddy this weekend...
I was given several pounds of clean shot to try in my smokepoles. I had a buddy with a gun shop that wanted to help sponsor me and me shoot the Clean Shot . NOT. It won't burn in any of my flinters. Sounds like a roman candle going off. It did shoot okay in my inline pistols but was still slow in my opinion. Nothing but 3F Goex for me. I don't mind cleaning if I know it's going off and hitting where I point it. I gave the stuff to my buddy that was shooting Pyrodex and he really likes it. I'm sure it has it's good qualities for percussion guns.
