KIK Real BP

Powder Inc. is a Distributor for Goex and other Black powders.

Check out the KIK powder they carry. I use it now, and can't tell any difference in it, or Goex. I like the price of KIK It's real black powder, not a Sub.! Brad

Thirteen pounds for a lb of black powder? Are you sure they're not selling you precious metals like silver or platinum?

Graf and Sons carries it. It looks like they even package it themselves.

Goex = $12.75 EXPRESS $17.75 KIK = $10.60 SWISS $19.25

POWDER INC.

It is less expensive for me to have it shipped, rather than drive 1 hour and pick it up myself .

Hey Mykeal:
I don't doubt what you say as of 1/11/2009's prices from GOEX ($99.75), as everything is going up in price right now.

My 12/17/2008 invoice for 5 cans of assorted Black Powder was >>>$73.10
at the prices I mentioned. {$26.65} **That's a pretty good hike. Glad I got mine when I did. It will last me for awhile, as I don't shoot all that often.

In the Phoenix, Arizona area Bass Pro Shops still sells GOEX for about $19 per can. Most gun shops here no longer carry it because of city fire codes and insurance requirements.

Get it while you can guys. These may be the "good old days".

I'm heading back to Bill's Sporting Goods in Lomira, WI soon...

I'll post what the prices were for my purchases when I make the trip.

I've also been told that I should contact some of the local fireworks distributors in Southern Wisconsin. It appears they may have a way to keep me supplied, although I don't know what it is that they'd provide. Chinese fireworks powder ain't exactly Goex Cartridge, if you know what I mean...

I just ordered a 25-pound case (12 pounds FFFg, 13 pounds FFg) of KIK powder from Powder Inc. Prices seemed pretty reasonable. A friend of mine orders his from Graf & Sons.

How do you guys store so much black powder? I have 3 cans each of FFg and FFFg in my Liberty gun safe along with several cans of smokeless powders, but was just curious if you large volume buyers use a dedicated safe for so many pounds of explosives in your homes.

I have a flam locker.

Honest. I bought it at a DRMO auction many years ago, and it's perfect for storing propellants. The bright yellow color I can do without, but all my smokeless and BP sit in there just fine.

It looks a lot like the one on the left here:

Stack On gun safe from Northern Tool - at the far end of the house, away from all exits we might use in case of fire. Makes a nice vase holder. Heh.
