Austrian lanthorn flask
« on: November 01, 2020, 01:41:48 AM »
Like a lot of these old flasks the actual dropped charge is unknown when you purchase them and you only get to figure that out when you have them in hand.  I had hoped this one would be above 50 grains, preferably more, and maybe have a top end of some where around 80 grains. Unfortunately its range is 35-45 FFFg and nothing I have uses charges this light.  It is, however, a very nice example of a cross-spring pump charger.

a double charge would be 70-90 grains, just a thought.

Dennis, that is a wonderful flask, just to own.  One day you might "get" a .36 and then it will be a perfect powder container.
