I am pretty sure that 4f black powder does not ignite when exposed to a concussive force like a primer material does.I have almost 2 pounds of 4f powder, can that be used as the primer and then put the binder on or is that too dangerous? I already have the Forster cap maker. TIA
When combined with whichever improvised priming compound you are experimenting with, a tiny amount of black powder really increases the power of the charge of the cap. Mix wet with alcohol or water and in small amounts only. I mix in small Tupperware when my wife is not looking, although she doesn’t really care that much.

I ordered mine from 22 reloader. It hadn’t shipped in a while so I e-mailed him. He said his orders were backlogged. I’m sure that is true given the circumstances and glad he responded, but find the necessity to drop 60 bucks to hedge my bets and wait for weeks kind of annoying.
I'm beginning to think that the thing to do is to convert most if my percussion guns to flint !So in the mist of the virus I found out I am very short on caps. I am down to my last 200...So I ordered a percussion cap die and Some of that prime all powder. Has anyone here made their own?
