Forgive me if this topic has been covered already. I enjoy hunting with traditional BP firearms (caplocks, flintlocks), and thought it might be fun to take one to Africa some day. I know that you can't fly with black powder, even if it's loaded in a cartridge case. What about the various BP substitutes? Are those legal to fly with (any of them)? For those that have hunted with BP muzzleloaders in SA, how did you find it? Was you PH able to get BP without much difficulty? Did they have you "brand", or was is something else that didn't work so well? (Same question goes for caps as well, for those who use a caplock). I don't see too much re: traditional BP arms and hunting Africa.....maybe it's too much of a hassle?
