Not only do SUPER STICKS™ and STICKS® Compressed Charges possess the advantages of being composed of a powerful, sulfurless black powder replacement, but their proprietary design was invented to allow for quick and complete ignition as well as fast, easy, and consistent loading of a black powder firearm while maximizing the performance, accuracy, and dependability.
