Favorite type of Black powder?

Just curious what everyone's favorite black powder is? I'm asking about the actual powder, not the pellets. I was fortunate to draw a muzzleloader elk tag for colorado this fall and I am not used to shooting powder. Here in Wisconsin we are allowed to use powder pellets so I do not have any experience with powder. Any experience, good or bad, would be appreciated. Thanks

I have used traditional type Goex for years and like it, but I used it in traditional flintlocks and percussion rifles. Last year I was picked for a muzzle loader tag and wanted the best chance I could have. I purchased an in-line rifle and shot Blackhorn 209 powder. It is not suppose to draw moisture like traditional powders. I also purchased a screw in breech plug designed just for shooting the BH 209. I was very pleased with the powder and will continue to use it in my in-line rifles.

BH209 is all I use now. Works great in my TC Omega Z5. I shoot 250 Barnes TEZ sabots and can get 3-4" groups @ 200 yrds. Very clean burning. No swabbing between shots. I just clean it after fall hunting for the season.
Check with the state where you will be hunting to see what they allow.
