Not sure about the pellets but American Pioneer powder had a short shelf life after opened. It was great other than that. Very easy to clean and loading wasnt hard on fallow up loads. I would of kept using it had the consistency stayed the same after a short sit on the shelf after opened.

I use 2 Triple 7 50g pellets in my rifle and my pistol. Load a Shockwave 240g bullet. Never seen the need for 150 grains. Kicks much harder. Most of my shots are less than 100 yards.
