This indeed can be encouraging and gives us reason to hope.But they might not want to get into the shooting side of the market.

In looking at some of the Rocket forums it appears as though GOEX has long supplied Estes with a rocket propellant substance known as Meal Powder for their engines

No mention of it on the Estes Web page, but then they aren't exactly gabby about news.

"Estes Industries was founded in 1958 by Vern and Gleda Estes and found a home soon after in Penrose, Colorado (the model rocket capital of the world). Through more than six decades of hard work and innovation, Estes has grown to be the leading manufacturer of model rocket engines, kits and accessories. As of April 2018, Estes Industries is once again a family-run business, committed to enabling safe, successful flights for customers everywhere, from their backyards and school yards to worlds beyond. Our team is proud to be part of the Estes legacy, as rocketry has always been part of our history as engineers, rocketeers, and designers. Estes continues to the ignite imagination of each new generation."
