Video - The Palmetto Black Powder Tester in Action

I remember when Dixie Gun Works was selling this Palmetto black powder tester but don't remember ever seeing one in action before.
It would also seem to make a good black powder blank gun.
The last result with Swiss OB must be what we call Swiss Null B.
Those are reputed to be floor sweepings, the leftover BP dust from making all of the other granulations.
The video lasts 1:50.

Interesting.

Saw one of these a number of years ago but do not know the history or when they were first used. I recently saw and episode of "Pickers" where they showed one that they bought. These can be used, to perform a number of test…

Be Safe !!!
