Default CAN YOU MIX 777 AND PYRODEX PELLETS

Just wondering if it's all right to mix 777 pellets and pyrodex pellets in the same load???

Normally on Hodgdon's site they recommend not to mix powders...

For the sake of brevity I would say no way unless the MFG says it's ok and this general advice goes for all powders.

Hodgden does say it is OK to duplex a small amout of FFF with Pyrodex or T7 when shooting a flintlock or picky sidelock percussion gun. This is with loose powder and the shooter reducing the charge to make up for the added primer. For example you first put a little FFF Goex down the barrel before your main charge so you get better ignition.
