Fellas, I can find Pyrodex P locally, but no black powder. Can anyone tell me the advantages/disadvantages of Pyrodex in a smallbore percussion rifle? I am new to the game, and don't want to buy the wrong things.

Pyrodex p will do fine in small bore. It sets a lot more reliably then the coarser 2fg pyrodex.

I have used Pyrodex "P" in small bores for years with no difficulty.  Still must clean like using real BP, but when all you can get is the replica stuff, it works fine.
