If you want to drive to Stroudsburg on Monday I'll give you some to get you through the season, let me know.

If your using 3f in the barrel it will work for priming powder as well.

Either use FFFg or make it.Put powder in a film canister with a lead round ball and shake till you get the desired size.

I was at Dunklebergers today, along with a nice selection of used flintlocks, they have ffff in stock. My offer still stands to give you some though, a small pill bottle will last you until next year!

Go with 3 F in the pan---you wont need to spend the extra money and it will not cake up in humidity like the 4F. JMHO

You can simply sift 3F down through cheese cloth or old pantyhose, or take 3F and put a bit in paper fold paper and simply crush with handle end of screwdriver, all of these create nice fine 4F and ignite quickly.
