Anyone load up .45 Colt using this BP substitute?
Alliant load data specifies 26.5 gr. with 250 gr. bullet.

Haven't yet. I usually load Triple-7, but I've several bottle of MZ ... So might have to try it this spring. I've used it in my ROAs and it worked fine.

Well I have 2 lbs. coming at 9.99 per lb. and decided to try it with my .45-70 High Wall rifle first
using 405 and possibly 500 gr. lead bullets.
Will contact Alliant on loading data.

What I don't understand is the huge price difference between a couple of local gun shops and Sportsman Warehouse. Local shops want 27.00-29.95 per 1 lb. container when they have it!
Sportsman Warehouse was 9.99 per lb.
