Agreed CB, I use 70 gr in both the 50 and 54, a guy gave me some 2f, hadn't had a chance to try it yet.

I converted several of mine to magspark for 209 primers for hotter ignition. They still won’t work with Blackhorn 209 due to side locks design.

I have a can of pyrodex and a can of 777, both seem to work reasonably well on mine, I just prefer real black powder for the sidelocks. What was the name of the thing that covered the lock during inclement weather? I have one but never had to use it, cowlip or something like that?
