hi tim got some black powder, $50 a kilo its wano fff don't now what its like but will give it a go. have you herd of trappers pure mink oil .i youse it in my lube it works good keeps the fowling soft.
That sounds good, Bernie!! Don't know much about Wano, never seen it around here, Petersen's Hunting magazine has a black powder comparison in the August issue, in flintlocks and sidelock muzzleloaders, it performed with the lowest velocity of all the other powders tested, in the inline guns, it only beat Elephant, all test were done with 100grs of 2F granulation, could perform completely different in a cartridge rifle. But, ya gotta use whatcha can buy, and if it saves ya some money and keeps bullets in the air, goodonya!!
I spent the better part of 10 years doing living history as a mountain man/fur trapper, have used just about everything there is to use for bullet/patch lube from mink oil, bear grease and whale oil, to some of the modern stuff!!
