    Flea market today

    Two cans of Black Powder. Not sure how old they are.
    Mold is a Modern-Bond .454-550-690
    3 dippers have the word (BLACK) on them.

    What is the mould for? Are there any words on any of the dippers? Thanks for sharing.

    That's great.
    The only things flea market venders have here is stuff they pulled out of the trash.

    The black powder should still be good.
    There was a article years ago about a guy that found a real old flint lock pistol, that was loaded.
    He got the ball out, dumped the powder, reloaded it all, and fired it.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never ask an old person, "how are you doing"?
    They eagerly look forward to telling you,,,,,,,, and ya really don't want to know.
