Swiss throws those sparks out the end as well.

COOL PHOTO!! It makes sense that it would have to, at least to some degree, But it sure isn’t noticeable in Daylight like Goex is. I wouldn’t shoot any of it in a Dry field without a fire truck handy lol!


The thing that REALLY got me Started watching for it was after my Dad had Shot over that fresh Snow with his 100 Volume Grains of Goex 2F, I was AMAZED at the Trail of Debris it left on the Snow, Where my Swiss loads left NOTHING on the Snow, at least that we could see? Even the 80 Grains of Swiss in the 10” Pistol barrel shot over the fresh Snow, there was no Debris detectable?


This would be a really good time to go out and play over fresh Snow with different Powders, we are getting snowed on now

When i bought this Can of Goex Olde E 2F, i compared it visually to Swiss 2F, This Olde E looks nearly identical to me. I Definitely plan to shoot more of this Olde E coming up, My 1 and only test with Olde E isn’t exactly fair, It might require a little Less, or maybe more of it? More compression? I will definitely play around with it more coming up.

I’m ready for Spring  :tup2

I called up Goex when OE first came out. We had a pretty good talk about it. He said their goal was to match Swiss powder. He admitted they got close but couldn't quite match it.

So, any test showing otherwise isn't accurate.
