Re: what knid of powder???
I'll assume you have a pecusion cap sidelock.
Any BP subsitute will work (loose powder; not pellets); my favorite is fffg Pyrodex.
I get flack from the "purist"; but it does the job.
The last time I was in Memphis, I was at the Naval "A" School.
If I lived there now; it'd be a good bet that you would find me hanging out at Dixie Gun Works !
