Consistency is the key to attaining premium performance from blackpowder firearms and cartridges, and that’s the premise behind GOEX Powder’s Olde Eynsford Royal Blend “match-grade” blackpowder. Unlike most blackpowders, in which there is a mixture of grain sizes, “From top to bottom each grain of Olde Eynsford is uniform in size, taking variables out of the equation,” reports Chris Hodgdon, sales/public relations manager for Hodgdon Powder. This results in increased velocity and uniformity, the latter of which is important for attaining the utmost accuracy. Furthermore, the U.S.-made powder is hand crafted through all phases of the manufacturing process, and the company purportedly uses only select-grade materials, including: premium charcoal, sulfur, and potassium nitrate. Olde Eynsford is offered in 1½ Fg, 2 Fg, and 3 Fg grades (granulations) in 1-lb. plastic containers, which sell for $17 at Graf & Sons.
