People sometimes claim that a particular powder is "clean burning", (In a revolver) and now, maybe I know what theyre talkin about.
I've loaded my 44 Mag. with H or IMR 4227, H110, and Universal, and the cases don't extract easily after firing, because there seems to be a film of something on the outside of them, which I'm assuming comes from the powder.
Today, I had occassion to shoot a bunch of 44 Mag. loaded with BLUE DOT. I was using 15 grains and 240 grain SWC BB bullets. The brass came out easier, and bright and shiny, with no residue.
Too bad I'm stocked up on those other powders. I might just become a Blue Dot fan.
What other powders burn cleanly in 44 Mag. as I've defined clean burning?
