It can be difficult to select the right grade of black powder to get the most out of your shooting. Fortunately, we have created this chart to help. Simply select the kind of gun you're shooting, and pick a powder! Generally, the larger the calibre, the coarser the powder. The black powders marked as 'Superfine' must never be used for anything other than pan or cannon fuse priming.
