I want to use a needle to gunpowder I got from a 22 into a cap. I will put the cap in the cap gun and fire it. I will not only be useing a small chip will this work? ps i do not care if it could hurt me

Gunpowder on it's own will just burn, It needs to be in a enclosed enviroment, tightly sealed to burn fast enough to build up enough pressure to really do anything. I would guess you might get a spark and maybe a scorch mark on the cap gun.
