Blackpower types

I've thought about getting into black powder guns, but there are all kinds of terms being flung around that I have no idea what people are talking about. What is Pyrodex? There seem to be all kinds of different powders, so are that all just a variation of black powder?

Is this stuff naturally corrosive? I've heard guys say that you need to clean the gun immediately when you are done shooting for the day.

Aw heck. I thought the ff gradings were the reverse. fff was the finest powder. Shows you how much I know about this. Maybe I should stick to guns where I just stick a cartridge into it and pull the trigger. Probably would be able to spend more time shooting than shoving things down the barrel anyway.
