    Hayes and associates carterton definitely, might pay to ask h&f or rivers 2 ranges. H&f palmy have had it in the past.

    Cheers team. I'm new to this game so not exactly sure what I need. My new musket is a front stuffer and I'm told I need 2f powder.

    Its a .58 zoli front stuffer its a very short barrel so ether 3 or 2 f
    I used FFg (2f)in it but my mate to brought the other one
    (The guy I brought it off had 2 for sale)
    Uses FFFG(3f )and it shoots good

    theres a guy in the Waikato that makes black powder and sells it . Dunno his name - one of the CAS guys will likely know.
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    FFFG will burn a bit faster than FFG, but you cannot come to harm with a muzzle loader, as long as there’s no air gap between the powder and the projectile, the beauty of BP shooting!
