Hi All, I would like your option on which of these powders would be able to shoot multiple shots between cleaning?

I've only used Swiss with a PRB, and i'd only get 3-4 shots before swabbing.

You can get more shots with a PRB. Not sure with conicals.

Even though Swiss is clean for real BP. It's still BP, and won't be as clean as the subs.

Pyrodex RS wasn't that bad when I used it in a few different guns. I could load it up several times without swabbing but eventually I would have to run a patch through. I have also shot the pellets with about the same results. If I recall correctly I could get around 6 shots or so before I felt the need to. Certainly nothing like having to swab between each shot. Never used Swiss and had about the same results with Triple 7 pellets but haven't used the loose stuff from what I can remember.
