In the past year I have started reloading my own trap loads, the powder I have been using is 700x which seems to make a mess of my gun. Do any of you know if there is a powder that is just as hot but with less mess?

IMO 700x sucks and isn't that hot as far as I'm concerned. For nice clean loads I really like Alliant Green Dot. To what velocity were you loading your shells and how much payload were you shooting? I've really taken a liking to Hodgdon Longshot for my sporting clays rounds, I've been loading 1 1/8 #8s @ 1400 fps, but I wouldn't suggest that for anything but an autoloader though.
