Stay away from the cheap traditional flasks. The higher priced ones are ok. I use a cylindrical brass CVA flask. It's not very traditional but it works. https://www.amazon.com/Blackpowder-Products-Grain-Spout-Cylinder/dp/B004RC4DVY?ref_=ast_bbp_dp

Like Hawg posted a flask and spout and for load development, an adjustable powder measure is nice to have. A low/no dollar alternative is an empty ketchup or dish soap bottle and you can use empty cartridge cases for measures. Here is a link to a chart on how much black powder different cartridge cases hold.https://www.muzzleloadingforum.com/threads/black-powder-measures-from-cartridges.58311/

Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store not a government agency.
