Powder / Re: SCHUETZEN BLACK POWDER

I wonít be able to get an appointment until late next week, maybe not then, depending on the ownerís availability.  I didnít want to buy several pounds without having some idea of the quality of the powder.

It's a Swiss type BP. I shoot Swiss and like it. Swiss charcoal is from alder, Schuetzen charcoal is from a mixture of wood. Why not try it and then report back.

I had the dubious distinction of being the first man in the four year history of the 4th Military Intelligence Co. (4th Inf Div) in Viet Nam to be wounded.  That was while I was on loan with one of my interrogation teams to a battalion of the 173d located at LZ Uplift in northeastern II Corps in Sept. 1970.  My replacement got hit the next day while choppering in to replace me.  We quit going to support your guys after that.  GF
Sorry for your wounds GF. I know it wasn't funny then but you sure added a little humor in your post. Yep, I guess you found out that the "Herd" used to get into some pretty good doozies over there. To enlighten you a bit ,my first wound was cause by our own friendly fire when the VC broke through our perimeter out in the jungle. Our CO called in a volley of HE but the rounds landed short and I caught some of the shapmetal. The second time,I was wounded, I was on point and fell into a pungi stake hole. I was very fortunate in that one just got me in the leg and not somewhere else.Oh God,the thought of that.
Welcome home brother!

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Remington break-up

Yup...lawsuits, including Sandy Hook....but even bigger is the dramatic drop off of quality. Another large lawsuit of the Model 700 triggers and 870 issues sounded a death knell. Remington was no longer considered a quality product. I'm sure Vista Outdoors will do a much better job than the previous investment group...so the Remington name will still be around, but the quality will remain to be tested.
The only thing that was ever wrong with the Rem. 700 triggers were the unsafe idiots behind them. Much like the idiots that took MacDonalds for their money because they drove down the road with a hot cup of coffee between their legs.

Thanks, I had been wanting one for some time. I had started making my own, but contacted Mike and we made a deal. I sent him the gun to hand-fit to the holster. I couldn't be more satisfied!

I have never used it, but have heard it is quite good. Maybe someone else will chime in.

Has anyone used this powder?  I donít know anything about it. I found a local dealer who sells this but he requires a scheduled appointment to buy it.
