I personally like the Pyrodex RS pellets. I swab the barrel between shots, and shoot sabots so it is not a big clean up deal at the end of the day. The thing with Pyrodex RS is.. if you shoot it that day, clean it that day. Pyrodex is corrosive and will rust your gun faster then any other powder out there from tests I conducted a while back. Even faster then black powder. So while I like Pyrodex, I make sure I clean the rifle the same day. With Triple Se7en you might get a day or two grace period more then Pyrodex before the rust starts. Actually Triple Se7en will clean up with simple water.

Both pellets are about equal in strength. So it is up to you as far as cost, cleaning, and preference.

I was curious as to the difference between the pyrodex pellets and 777 powder so I shot several groups with each propellant for comparision purposes.

At the end of the day, after shooting 90gr loose and 90gr (3x30gr pellets) and 250gr shockwave sabots......I found no difference in my groups.

From that, I came to the conclusion that I will shoot pellets in the field due to their convienent loading......and I'll shoot powder at the range since it's cheaper by volume.
