    Historical Accuracy and Period Correctness - and they enjoy the stench of rotten eggs. Is my guess.

    I used Pyrodex for a spell back in the late 1980's, when real black became near impossible to find locally.
    (the Internet had not been invented at the time, and I did not have a computer, anyway.)
    It shot well enough in the CVA rifles and (steel framed) reproduction revolvers I had back then.

    I think I currently have two pounds of FFg Swiss, and around a half pound of RS Pyrodex in reserve.

    I think @Howie1968 ’s hair looks good in his photographs and see no reason to switch to Holy Black Pomade.

    Personally, when shooting muzzleloaders, I am a fan of Swiss powder, fff in particular, but if I found a gun or guns that preferred Pyrodox, I wouldn’t hesitate to use it. Always have to let the gun tell you what it likes.

    Still not sure what you didn’t like about Howie’s hair??

    I too will say nice score Howie. The accessories are probably worth what you paid for the rifle.
