Additional Information
American Pioneer Powder is a loose, granular powder designed and created to be a sulfurless black powder replacement. American Pioneer Powder comes in 2 traditional granulations for all manner of cartridge and muzzleloading needs. Whether you are shooting patched round ball, a modern sabot load or a conical projectile, muzzleloading has never been easier! Used on a volume for volume basis for your traditional black powder loads, it will give you the same performance, velocity and accuracy without the messy clean-up and difficult follow-up reloading from black powder fouling. Cartridge loading will also give the same results. Basic loading instructions are to fill the case to the point where the seated bullet will very slightly compress the powder about 1/16" when it is seated and seat the bullet with a good crimp. No matter what type of black powder shooting you do, you will find you won't have the continual build-up of fouling that makes reloading difficult and can cause guns to bind up. And since clean-up can be done with a damp patch after a day of shooting, it will leave more time for shooting and fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this powder with flintlocks. I use American Pioneer Powder in my flintlock rifles with a 20-grain detonator charge of straight black powder. That goes in first, then (i.e.) 60 grains of American Pioneer, using a safe "duplex charge" for flintlocks since it does not ignite well by itself in flintlock firearms. I never exceed the manufacturer's set powder charge, and I always use powder measures. I like this method because of the easy post-range clean-up after the range session, and still be able to use it in the type of guns that I love to shoot-flintlock muzzleloading rifles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3F Works Great In Cap & Ball Revolvers I only like to use the FFFG. It works great in cap & ball revolvers and in my inline hunting rifle during the winter deer season. It likes heavy compression. Mark the ramrod for consistent compression. Sometimes it needs swabbing in revolver barrels after 24 shots or so for better accuracy. Works well for winter hunting. I always keep the lid tight for storage and never had any go bad. Gander Mt. carries the FFFG, make sure to ask for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from American Pioneer FFg Not as potent as BH209 or 777, but also not nearly as expensive and cleans up easier. About 450+ shots through 3 in-line rifles using both 209 and #11 ignition, not a single misfire except 2 attributed to soggy #11 caps. Using a chronograph, 120 grains loose FFg gives very consistent 2050-2090 fps velocities behind Hornady's 250 gr. SST in my H&R Sidekick with Metrics Unlimited 209 breech plug. MMP orange sabot and Hornady .458 325 grain FTX with 110 grains APP FFg give 1920-1960 fps and beautiful terminal bullet performance from 50 to 250 yards with 2" 5-shot accuracy at 100 yards from my Sidekick (my "Elk and Up" load). Same sabot and a Barnes Banded Solid FB .458 500 gr. bullet in front of 90 grains APP FFg yields an 1100 fps sledgehammer that drove through 18" of wet phone books, 2 creosote-soaked railroad ties, and nearly a foot of sand behind it all. (Practical application? None - just fun.) Despite APP's claim that it's not necessary, I clean with 1 wet (water) patch and 2 dry, then one lightly Bore Buttered patch and one more dry, after every shot which is no inconvenience to me in the field as I sit out a shot deer's run to let him lay down before I start tracking. APP Sticks aren't as good as their loose FFg; see reviews on this site for APP sticks, my experience with them is largely the same as other reviews so dedicated pellet shooters should look to other brands. Gander Mountain always has the best price on APP in my area by at least $2 per can.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from APP Powder Powder varies greatly in size and did not meter very well in rifle/pistol cartridge sizes. I decided to use it up in shotgun shells and it seems to work OK. Gander's price, haz mat charge, and free shipping made the experiment worthwhile, though. Gander's final price was by far the lowest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Gunpowder Have never had any problems with APP. It is an excellent black powder substitute for Cowboy Action Shooting and historical re-enactments. APP has all of the smoke and smell of actual black powder but none of the mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow! Through chrono, more variation in speed and fully 800 to 1000 fps less than exact load and bullet with Triple 7. That's significant and to me doesn't make up for the "cleanliness" of AP over Triple 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Powder I tried this in a .54 cal Hawken, a .50 cal flintlock, and a 1863 Zouave musket and it performed great. Absolutely no ignition problems. This is much easier to obtain than blackpowder also.

Does this product measure the same as black powder?

Asked by: Dogeye
Yes, the American Pioneer FFG Powder measures volume for volume as black powder.
