Just inside reloading some powder tubes, but I have my Traditions Woodsman Hawken .50cal flintlock out on the 100 yard range with 80gr 2fg Goex and using some grafs 4fg for the pan that Pete gave me a couple years ago. Not impressed! I can hear the frizzen open before the rifle goes off. It seems a lot weaker than the 4fg Goex I've had since 2006 which lights off instantly. I've played around with more/less pan powder and nothing has help its super slow firing.

I still have a little less than half a can of 4f Goex, so that will be what I switch back over to once the day is over.

I bought the Graf's 4f when I bought the Goex 2F. They were out of Goex 4F, so I had no choice but to buy the Graf's. I didn't like it either.

I switched to using 3F for everything, and it was better. 4F is hard to keep in the pan while hunting. It finds the slightest little opening and leaks out.

Man it is super slow! I switched back to goex 4f and took 3 more shots ( 1 was adjustment) and the group improved superbly and centered up. Gotta take a shower and head to PT at 4, so when I get back I'll edit and upload the pics from today.

I use Graf's 2F and 3F and prefer it over Goex. However, I use Goex 4F because I've had the can forever, even before they started selling Schuetzen as their house brand.
I'm glad you let me know about the 4F.
