    Blackpowder

    I have a licence to keep and purchase blackpowder.
    A friend has asked if I would give him some to load a couple of BP shotgun cartridges,now the question is
    is it ok to do that?
    You can buy loaded BP cartridges on a normal shotgun cert !
    Thanks.

    No, your friend would need a Black Powder Licence too.

    The simple solution is to load the blackpowder cartridges for him and simply give him loaded cartridges. There should be nothing wrong with that.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Absolutely right if its loose powder however;

    Once black powder is in an "article" such as a firework or shotgun cartridge then it is subject to the rules for those items. in the case of a firework the fireworks laws on age etc and for shotgun ammo a shotgun cert must be produced upon purchase of cartridges.

    It is only when you remove the black powder and holds it loose that you require an explosives certificate.
