i just switched from REDDOT to TiGHTwad. and i must say i am very impressed with the loads i am getting out of it. This is a damn good powder and i notice not so much junk left in the barrel as with redot. my loads are a perfect moderate recoil (more light i should say) with a 1,300 fps range. again I recomend Tightwad over redot. plus its cheaper!
