While this one is my personal favorite, I think you are looking for some thing more modern and technical.

Seems all other brands are one word, so a one or two syllable name would be best - swiss, goex, pyrodex, 777, schuetzen, etc.

Owner of Belding & Mull, Inc. Starting to make BP. Looking for black powder tester, to test power.
I use my 1848 3rd Model Dragoon as a powder tester, hasn't hurt it a bit. Just use a tried and true method, ball milling each ingredient helps make a uniform powder. I graphite coat my powder for more uniform powder ignition. A pistol works fine for me.

If a person had some sort of consistent medium, like wet or oiled sawdust, I wonder if the penetration of a ball fired from a pistol would give a good measure of the relative power of one batch compared to another?
