FAQ On Hodgdon Triple 7 FFFG Load Data

- Is Triple 7 a good powder?
Triple 7 is not a true equivalency powder, meaning you cannot always use the same measured charge you normally use with black powder. It produces a bit higher pressures per volume than black but is safe in modern firearms in good condition as long as Hodgdon’s data is adhered to.
- Is Pyrodex and Triple 7 the same?
These propellants have essentially the same overall appearance and oxidizers, but different fuels. For example, Pyrodex(®) contains sulfur, sodium benzoate, and dicyandiamide (DCDA), whereas Triple Seven(®) lacks sulfur but also contains 3-nitrobenzoic acid.
- Is Triple 7 hotter than Pyrodex?
Triple seven burns much hotter than pyro. It is recommended by many experts to never shoot 150 grains of triple seven while you can with pyrodex, that tells me that they are not close to equivalent. And if you did shoot 150 of triple seven and 150 of pyrodex you would surely not get a higher velocity with pyrodex.
- Is Triple 7 smokeless?
They are considered smokeless powder by the DOT, and should be used with caution in older muzzleloaders, as there is no way that 100 grains volumetric charge of Triple Seven or Black Mag3 can be considered “the same” as traditional black powder.
