POWDER - We suggest HODGDEN Pryrodex® P (FFFg) for the most smoke and bang for the buck and most local Walmarts carry it.

WADDING - A single sheet of brown paper (kraft paper or paper bag) works best, that when tamped it fills the bore as close to the top as possible to form a tight plug.

TAMPING - Works be with a soft blow nylon head hammer along with your tamper using multiple light blows to compress the load first as well as the wadding.
