Supposedly its non-corrosive. Which is why I'm real interested. Has anyone tried it?

I switched to Blackhorn from Triple Seven with no drop off in performance. Actually, Blackhorn loads are a little faster than T7 with equal weights. But what makes Blackhorn amazing is that no swabbing between shots is required and to clean up you can use a solvent based product. I use Hoppe's No. 9. I never liked putting water into my firearm. Also, it supposedly has an indefinite shelf life and does not absorb water out of the air like some black powder substitutes. I use CCI 209 primers and have had no misfires or trouble whatsoever with my Omega. However, I've heard that some shooters using other muzzle loaders may have to enlarge the fire channel in their breach plug.

Good luck!
