    Hodgson 777 FFG in a .44 revolver

    Morning chaps,

    Simple question, is this OK to use? I normally use the FFFG variant but have run out and now can't buy any more (no BP/explosives licence). I do however have some FFG, just not sure if it's safe to use in a Pietta New Model Army.

    Any advice gratefully received.

    There should be no problem , It's 1 grade courser so if anything it should burn slightly slower practically unnoticeable by felt recoil.
