I guess its up to a couple of prospective new shooters of the wholly black to raise that Phoenix out of the ashes.

Maybe we start a post conataining a roll and dig through the forum and figure out who should be on it. Maybe someone with admin rights can pin it to the top.

I'ge got a few hundred rounds of the heathen stuff to use up and then I plan to go to the real stuff.

Same here.  I did find a "Roll" type post but can't add us to it.

I loaded some 12 gauge brass with the good stuff last night and I'm about to head out and make smoke. Cheesy
Is there anything more fun than making big clouds of smoke?

Other than wax for fast draw the only thing I shoot is the Holy Black.

Front stuffer
Cap and Ball
BP cartridge
and adding soon black powder shotgun.

I think we tried to go too fast.  Started with a seal and then instantly went to different levels and layers based on different criteria.  Probably just need to stay more focused on the "Holy Black"

I only own the one gonne that uses the Holy Black so far, but I'm selling off the modern contraptions I own to fund a brace of cap and ball revolvers. I do my own leather work, made myself a set of spurs and pushrod, and plan to continue to make my own gear.
As such, I would see myself counted as a Brother Artisan upon taking up the Black Covenant.

ConfederatNorth;  It sounds like you qualify as requested.  The Covenant is basically self-administered  as there are literally thousands of us , all around the world that follow the creed of the Holy Black.  You are welcome to the brotherhood.

Fer TWB...
Yep it certainly `took off` at a rate of knots!!

And I agree, the main only thing we should have been concentrating on is how to further our knowledge and understanding of the True Propellant.

Mayhaps this time around....?  Cheesy

Spent the afternoon working up a BP load that will shoot a good pattern in my Stoeger coach gun; which is now designated to only shoot the real stuff.  Count me as a brother artisan too! Cheesy

First time my son,8 , had seen black powder was today. The first shot I heard him yell "AWESOME!", followed by "Wow th smells awful"; guess BP odor is an aquifed scent.

Nothing beats that beautiful cloud of smoke.  It won't take long and your son will think the smell is incense.  Smiley

Not a bad way to woo the ladies either.  When drinking my early morning BP tea, I put a little behind each ear.  Gotta dang near beat the ladies off with stick.  Wink

I don't mind the smell of real BP; but I think I'll pass on the Ballistol cologne.

I agree, Tyrel - but I do use Ballistol Moose Milk.  I just hate the smell.

I PREFER to use Hoppes #9 PLUS BP cleaner & lube, but it's harder to find & more expensive, at least the few places where I have found it.

I simply use it (Moose Milk) as a good cleaner/neutralizer (the water is the neutralizer) - I leave lubing to PROPER lubricants.  And yes, the Hoppes mixed with BP residue stinks as bad as Ballistol; HOWEVER, to ME ... Ballistol stinks as soon as you open the can - the Hoppes doesn't smell bad until it mixes with BP residue!

But your mileage may vary ...

This past weekend marked the SMVS's (the Scarlet Mask Vigilance Society - our local NCOWS club) first ever 2-day shoot & camping extravaganza ... but unfortunately, it was also our last shoot of the 2013 shooting season.  (Our range is smack-dab in the middle of some of Indiana's best hunting areas and we didn't want to chance shooting a hunter, so Nov. 'thru Feb. we load our Black Powder rounds for NEXT season.)

My main reason for mentioning this is that as usual, I shot BP in all my bullet launchers!  Nuthin' but the best!
