Hi fellas,
I’m having a dickens of a time with fouling in a Rem New Mod Army, and a 36 Southern Rifle. First time w/Pinnacle. I never have a petroleum film on anything, clean, dry iron. Weather was 50 deg (above), I almost had to sandblast to clean them up, 20 min after I finished shooting. Has anyone else had this kind of curse with Pinnacle? Any info will be helpful.

You had really hard carbon fouling didn't you ?
That's the nature of ascorbic acid based powders that use dextrose as a fuel.
There's a reason they keep going out of production.

My advice, use real blackpowder, Pyrodex or 777.
