Hi Tom, it's the same BP sub as Black MZ, now discontinued. Minimal fouling. Use like you would BP. Cleanup is a breeze and you will miss it when its gone. If you like it, buy Black MZ.

Regards,
Richard

It's good stuff.  I use it my .38s.  Meters through a measure on my progressive better'n T7 or APP.  Cleans up wit plain water & a couple patches.  Not being made anymore; but Powder Inc still has some.
