I'm about to purchase a shiny new powder flask with my birthday money(I'm going for a curved one, like the guy doing Caliver drill in De Gheyn)

I'm probably going to get the biggest one anyway but: how much is an issue and a half of powder? I just want to have an idea of the capacity I might need.

I think it is 6oz or a one and a half pots that were once used for an Actimel type drink.

It's also quicker if you have your own funnel that fits your flask.

Every once in a while we might see a double issue - the closest metric measure to 8oz.

And Rachel's right, a small funnel is invaluable.

I've think I've made up my mind to get the biggest one in the curved shape. Or at least, I'll get it when Bob gets back from South Africa at the start of February!
