Swiss 1 1/2 Fg black powder
Does anyone use this powder in their flintlock? I picked up a pound of this several years ago thinking I would try different powders and loads in my two Thompson Centers but never did. I had used Goex 2F for awhile and just used the last of the Elephant 3F I had. The grains of the Swiss look similar in size to the Goex 2F. My Hawken shoots .495 roundballs well with .15 patches and 80 grains of Elephant 3F so wondered what a comparable load of Swiss 1 1/2 Fg might be. Thanks for any info.
Hunting is not a matter of life and death. It's more important than that.
