Powder flask

    A close-up of a powder flask for either Black Powder or Pyrodex, some percussion caps and .45 calibre lead balls. Black Powder shooters can choose between ball and normal bullets, the bullets are more accurate in rifles arms, but the balls are cheaper and easier to load. All percussion guns have to use caps to start off the main charge. These flasks are not to be used on the range as they are not approved for 21st century use (there is a risk of stray sparks detonating the contents, tuning the flask into a hand-grenade).
