Bought some Remington Sport Loads and it seemed as though the gun was much dirtier. Normal?

Crappy plastic, metal bases, not so good shot inconsistent velocity, let's face it. Cheap is cheap.

And that's exactly as it should be.

Inexpensive powder and dirty powder are not necessarily the same thing. Clean burning powder and very good powder are not always the same thing.

Accurately judging the performance of a powder requires a lot of equipment. Many simply try to judge the performance of a powder by looking down the barrel at the end of the day.

Clean/dirty really doesn't matter that much when you are shooting a break open gun.

A gas semi-auto is a different story.

Never tried claydot, but cleaned a whole bunch if TiteWad and REX powder out of the trigger of a 391 when that was my main gun. Like timB99 said, with a breakopen gun, there is less to clean, whatever powder you use.

Try using a minimum load of Blue Dot in your pistols. Dirty as heck. Nobody would confuse Blue Dot for a cheap powder. Some powders like it a little higher on the pressure spectrum for clean, complete combustion.

I have shot thousands of Estates in the last 3 or 4 years and find them to be as clean as anything else I have used. Dave in NY, did you move back?? Larry Evans
