I am thinking the easiest source of BP for this purpose may be a zero delay low power motor. No clay cap. Not sure if you need to use plastic instead of metal to scrape it out, obviously you don’t want to create any sparks, although I think this would be unlikely.I'm trying but I'm addicted to 9v batteries and need that sweat taste in my veins.
You mean like a 13mm or 18mm? I figure as soon as I buy some Quick Dip, the motors will come with pyrogenic starters.
I have lots of smokeless gunpowder but no BP for a muzzleloader. Too much work (like a reloadable motor)...
I got this from Walmart, but the grains were waaaaay to thick. An inexpensive mortar and pestle did the trick. Probably would work for chunks of propellant harvested from say a D12-0.
