Excellent information on Black Gun Powder

Here is a youtube on black powder. Excellent information on our favorite propellant.

Very informative video. Thanks for posting. I laughed at one of the comments regarding "NSSA shooters regurgitating the same information"...

Another fun fact... Almost every straight walled revolver cartridge in use today has black powder origins.

Some evolutionary maps:

.36 cap and ball -> .38 Colt -> .38 Special -> .357 Mag.

.44 cap and ball -> .44 rimfire -> .44 Colt -> .45 LC -> .44 Rem. Mag. -> .454 Casull -> .460 S&W -> .500 S&W
Climb onto the saddle and ride with me through the last remaining Wild West frontier in the world.
