just cut it individualy and it will not pop back because if its all packed together some of the gunpowder explodes with the others.

take an exacto knife that has a long and narrow blade, then carefully pry the paper covering the powder off. .

Cooldude703, cap gun powder is not flash powder. It's actually Potassium Chlorate, powdered glass, and phosphorous. Good idea with the nail, though!

use a finishing nail and slowly and carefully put it in the cap and put it on the side then pop out the percussion cap and knock out the powder onto a peice of paper (cap gun powder is flash powder so be careful!)
