Powder

Take a look at Jack's Powder Keg. It will be worth your time. Jack is a real gentleman and a pleasure to do business with. Give him a call on the toll free number.

Friendship

I get mine, Goex & Swiss at Friendship Indiana. Anyone who attends the shoots can get it there. I think the price last year was 11.00 a lb.

Anyone know where I can buy BP in North Carolina? Hopefully in the Triad area.

NCWanderer; Local purchases of real black such as GOEX is getting harder and harder to find. I hope you can find some locally, but if not you have several options on the previous page. Five pound minimum is required for some mail orders, while others require larger Lots.

Thanks Sagetown, I kinda figure that's what I'll have to do. All I have is a pound that was given to me by a friend who said it was about 12 years old. I guess age don't matter with BP because it fires with any problems.

Can't help you here in Arizona but the only place I know of to buy GOEX Black Powde is Bass Pro Shops. I just picked up 5 cans of FFg for the Walkers and .54 Hawken. Sooner or later, it will be "too dangerous" to sell.

Here is a link to Goex Distributors:

www.goexpowder.com


There are dealers around that also sell, but the price is usually higher.

Hey guys, here's a recommendation. Check around and see if there are any civil war re-enactors in your area. They routinely travel to "events" where sutlers sell powder. I'm willing to bet one of them would be willing to pick up a # or two for you!

Go to the Goex web site at www.goexpowder.com and click on the distributors list on the left side of the screen. That will give you the name of the nearest distributor. Contact them to find out where you can buy the good stuff.

It looks as if your closest distributor is CSI Sports, LLC in Sauk Rapids, MN.

Hey Poodleshooter.........that's an interesting handle you got there. How did you come about it?

On Black Powder I still get mine at Bass Pro Shops in Mesa, Arizona. That is about the only place in the Phoenix area that I know of. Going to buy another 3 lbs today!!

There's a large public shooting range with a gun shop in Wallingford, CT that usually stocks it but their prices tend to be high. They also carry a wide variety of muzzle loading shooting supplies.
Located off of Exit 15 of I-91, south of the intersections with the Merritt Parkway & I-691 in south Central Connecticut.

acepyro.com has several diff formulas. Their website states that Hobbyists are able to purchase from 1 to 50 pounds without an ATF Licence.

2FA 50lbs $375

4FA 50lbs $375

7FA 50lbs $375

Military Class 7 50lbs $200

and Meal-D Black Powder 50lbs $375

They are out of stock on the 4FA and 7FA right now> But I have seen them in stock in recent past.

$7.50 per Pound is the best Price I have seen in recent years.

I have not ordered since they can not ship But for anyone close to Michigan It would be one hell of a deal to stock up on some. (They DO State that Special Delivery Options can be arrainged? I don't know what that means? Maybee if you have a certain Freight Company go pick it up for you to Ship to your area? kinda curious about that but cost would probably be prohibitive as far as I am in AZ, it'd wind up costing me same as getting it here in Retail Pkging)...

Happy Shooting Guys...

I buy my powder from Graf and Sons reloading company, located in Mexico, Missouri.

I live in Kansas and have business in Illinois, and Graf and Sons is conveneintly located about a half hours north of I-70, so I call in ahead of time to their warehouse and place my order over the phone. Then all I have to do is pick the order up on my way through Missouri.

I pay $15.99/1 lb for Goex FFG and FFFG this way.

Powder Inc sells Goex in 25 pound lots for 15.40 a pound including shipping and Hazmat. My local Bass Pro Shops sells Goex for 25.00 a pound. I live in Ca gun shops in small foothill towns sell black powder their prices are all over place. The best way to buy powder is to buy a 25 pound lot and split it with 2 or three guys. These days i make my own screened black powder. I like shooting it in my revolvers. The nice thing about making your own powder is you don't have store large amounts of powder. I can make small batches as i need it. It is easy to make and it does not cost a lot to get started making it.
