My friend regularly cleans his brass, so the staining is not so much a problem, but we have also noticed that is smells mildly unpleasant, too. It must be an acquired taste.tomiswho":nhqca9xl said:I find your comments, Lost Sheep, interesting regarding the different velocities seen by how you "shake" the powder in the case.
I like Trail Boss too. I use it for range loads for my .454 - fills the case nicely - only thing I notice is the brass is staining pretty good... have you noticed that? I'm using 7.0 g Trail Boss estimated 900 fps.
