    I love this stuff - no longer made. Very low smoke when hunting. Easy to clean. Injury forced me out of hunting and shooting. Eliminating stock.

    From Sportsmans Guide:

    Clear Shot
    Unlike any of the black powder substitutes, Clear Shot is a spherical powder that does not compress under pressure. It is more moisture resistant than black powder or the other substitutes and is easier to ignite than Pyrodex RS or Pyrodex Select. Because of its greater resistance to moisture and lack of combustion residues, it is an excellent powder to use in hunting loads for rifles or shotguns, although more Clear Shot must be used to reach the same velocities given by black powder loads. Unlike Pyrodex RS and Select, this powder works well for main charges in flintlock guns. This powder also may be used in cartridges, but gives less velocity than equivalent black powder loads. Clear Shot does not perform well in percussion revolvers because it will not compress under the bullet.

    Availability has been the historic problem with Clear Shot. Goex makes a batch of this product a year, which quickly sells out. It is an excellent product of its type, but may be hard, or impossible, to find once a supply is exhausted. It is advisable to purchase more than one can at the time and use this powder sparingly for hunting.
