He gave you the White Hot pellets, I don't use them but heard good things about them. I use two Pellets of Triple 7 Magnum and a 250gr Barnes T-EZ

Black Horn powder shoots great, super clean but for the amount of shooting I do I like the ease of dropping in two pellets

Well didnt really give me the pellets I had to buy the damn things along with the primers..but I really didn't pay a lot for the gun and everything else so I guess I made out ok. dont really know what round to use yet..once I get use to shooting it then I'll have a better idea....I hope

Blackhorn is very clean, but expensive it comes in powder form, you useless verus black powder or pyodex. I use Triple 7 magnum, they also make Triple 7 non magnum,

I've been using Pyrodex, not sure if there is a specific model or kind that I'm using they work great. 

 

I also clean the gun with Borebutter, which helps load the first round and helps keep the fouling off the barrel. I can usually get about 5 shots before it gets too nasty, and that's 5 shots using 2 Pyrodex pellets per shot.
