Never shot it either, but heard the same as Hawg about it not liking compression.

I've always compressed my 777 and never had a misfire or any problems, yet. But knowing all of this, and after I burn up my can of 777, I'll start using powder that ends in ex, either Pyrodex or GOEX. Where I get my powder from, the GOEX is a few dollars cheaper. I'm all for cheaper, as long as cheaper is better. Besides, I'm so cheap, if I'm walking through a parking lot or somewhere and I see a penny on the ground, heads or tails, it goes in my pocket.  (?^ (?^ ->i _l

If I had my druthers I'd take Goex.

I have three cans of GOEX fffg and one can of GOEX ffffg, and about half a can of 777 left. Once the 777 is used up, I'll stick to GOEX.

I stick with Pyrodex. The local shops may or may not have GOEX on the shelf, it costs more, and I don't like change.
If I shoot the Pyro, I know what to expect...good or bad.

I am anxious to see how that home made powder works!  Once my Goex runs short, I am going to start making my own.
