Wow, who would've guessed that components for more primitive weapons would get to that kind of money. Got a new flintlock I haven't fired yet, I'm assuming the powder for that isn't so ridiculous.

I have older neighbors that have both the knowledge and the ability to make their own. I don't know the rules concerning such things, and I don't ask. :whistle::D

When we were having black powder matches at our range, we could order 25lbs. of Goex have it dropped on the porch cheaper than buying Pyrodex from Walmart. Haven't bought any of either for a while and Goex went out of business. Hopefully the new owner will have it up and running soon. Dan.

High dollar stuff for sure but I do like the less fouling it provides over 777. It's not like I'm a high-volume muzzle loader shooter so I'd pick up a jug of it when I find some. Dan.
I wished I grabbed a big jug when I could have years ago! I love the stuff!
