Very few are able to reach out and touch people they have never met in a positive,meaningful manner- luckily for us, Cayugad was one of those few.

Question Flintlock powders-

what are you using & where are you getting it?

For example:
the only 4F for pan priming I can find is Goex, none locally.

With that, I might duplex 5 grains with Triple7 2F as a main charge.

Question Green Mt Barrel question-

That is, if it is not stamped "LRH", is it the 1:70 twist rate by default?

Were there other twists beside those two??
