@Festus yea state owned woodlands, like the national forests/state parks, ban hunting with smoke poles , flint and percussion , if we are in drought conditions, of if its really dry and windy, they will close it for the day. like they have at Francis Marion quite a few times. I
shoot real black powder, and not that crappy pyrodex, I get better burn and push on the same sized ball, but they are restrictions on storing it if you have more than 5 lbs.
it is a division hazard class 1.1D explosive and while is not usually as stringent on the transportation and storage on individuals, if you have more than the specified amount, you are supposed to store it in its own magazine, separate from any other flammable agents, in its own fireproof cabinet.
If you get stopped and have 10lbs or more in any vehicle without a correct permits /stickers and storage cabinet, it can be a bad day
it gets downright entertaining if your traveling with a bunch of Re-Enactors, of the war of Nawthern Aggression, and you get stopped by a trooper out of state carrying 50lbs for the artillery group.
