Been giving some serious intention to going all mono for hunting. Along the way I’ve given some thought to locating powders that work well in multiple cartridges and also have anti fouling characteristics.
The first ones comes to mind is the CFE223 & CFE Pistol.
In looking around I discovered that all Vihtavuori powders produced currently have an added decoppering agent. That got me thinking about what else I don’t know about anti-fouling powders. So I am seeking knowledge on which works with what, and what are the pros and cons etc.
As learn I will post it, and hope others will too. Blaze away folks!
I would stock up on whatever you can get, I have been buying a lot of muzzle loader supplies. I have used the CFE Black, 223 and pistol for a long time, never really used it for precision loads just bulk loading to stock up on 5.56, 9mm, 308 and 40. The 5.56 and 308 loads always seemed to be pretty accurate with a basic charge and variety of bullets.
It doesn’t happen everytime, but a 143ELDX moving at 2800 ± and at less than 100 can go grenade on ya. Between bloodshot, bone shrapnel and zero core recovered except what is splattered, I’d say yeah. Granted I coulda gone with a neck or shoulder shot in these cases. A mono just makes it a nonproblem.
