ZA Obatex
« on: February 23, 2020, 03:19:19 PM »
Seems our ZA friends have developed a new BP worth its weight in gold.

Obatex.

I wonder if there´s anyone on here that´s gotten the chance to try it out?

By the look of this it appears to be some kind of subtitute along the lines of Triple 7...................I'd love try some in my Ruger Old Army  : ])M

Not a substitute. https://youtu.be/g2ERWFMLptw  Swiss will work in a 1911 for at least five full mags. It's sanctioned by The Black Powder Shooting Union of South Africa which doesn't allow substitutes.
