    There is a former powder mill in Bergen as well as a magazine by the sea.
    Ullrich Bretscher found that modern Swiss ball-milled BP was denser than any homemade BP he could make, but that weight-for-weight his homemade BP was more powerful. So if loading cartridges go for factory BP, if loading a cannon/muzzle loader use homemade BP.
