Alliant Black MZ
From our testing and chasing, we’ve concluded that the best results can be achieved in 50 caliber mixer loaders by using 90 grains of Black MZ in conjunction with sabot bulles weighing either 240 grains or 260 grains. We were successful in our endeavors.

Make sure that the inside and outside of the barrel are dry and clean (swab the barrel with dry patches until there is no evidence of moisture).
Black MZ excels under the intense compression of the seated sabot.
Black MZM is a great choice for hunters, marksmen, and those who enjoy recreating the Old West with black powder firearms. Strong and almost non-corrosive, Black MZ mimics black powder’s performance without the usual inflammatory headaches and cleansing issues.

Ignition that is unaffected by humidity Find out the truth.
This material is practically non-corrosive and offers better barrel protection.
Cleaner burning means less ash to clean up.
Greater velocities can be attained at lower pressures.

Based on our testing and chasing experience, we’ve found that 90 grains of Black MZ combined with sabot bulles weighing 240 or 260 grains produces the best results in 50-caliber mixer loaders. Our efforts have proven fruitful. Verify that the barrel has been thoroughly cleaned and dried (swab the barrel with dry patches until there is no evidence of moisture). When the seated sabot is tightly compressed, black MZ performs at its best.
Reloaders’ guide load limits should not be exceeded under any circumstances.
No two powders of any kind, origin, or brand should ever be combined.
Never use smokeless powder in place of black powder or any substitute for black powder.

I reload a few Handgun cartridges (45 Long colt, 357 mags, 44 special.) this powder works great. I even started using this in my black powder rifles, Easier to get, Clean up is a lot easier, Just miss the Rotten egg smell.

I hung up my lil Knight Wolverine appx 12yrs ago when I bought a smokeless Savage ML10ii. The last Nov my youngest son (16) decided he wanted to hunt opening day of mzldr here in TN. He took a 152″ 13pt with my Savage & is HOOKED on front stuffers now! Rather than having to buy a new rifle I decided to “un-retire” my lil ol Wolverine. It didn’t like White Hots, Shockey Gold sticks were “ok” but I knew something better couldve found. BH 209 is NOT recommended in plunger type action guns like the Wolvie so my research lead me to this BlackMZ. WOW am I glad I tried this, it cleans up with simple patches wetted with Windex-Vinegar & makes shooting the Wolverine nearly as trouble free as my Savage. For ignition I used some T7 209s I had left over & ignition is thorough & complete! (90grns under a Barnes 250 Expander MZ) NO crud rings or residue & I assured firm seating as recommended. I was even shooting in in high 80s temps during sprinkles & drizzling rain so those are about THE WORST conditions for testing mzldrs. When done I cleaned the bore with 2 patches of Win-Vin, shot some brake cleaner in the bore, more brake cleaner on a patch & found that patch unnecessary as it came out SPOTLESS! I ran a patch with CLM thru the bore & left the gun overnight. 24hrs later I ran a dry patch thru to see what, if anything had developed. The ONLY thing that came out on that patch was the CLM! I then purposefully left the bore dry & let it sit for a week now! I ran a clean patch thru the bore yesterday & it was still SPOTLESS!!! I’m SOLD on this powder & I’m actually happy to once again tote my lightweight, short & quick lil Wolverine into the woods knowing I don’t have to tear it down & make a miserable mess every night. “2 THUMBS UP!”
