Ballarat......I think weve chatted elsewhere....haha
Ah sorry mate, been on too many forums over the years. All blend into one!

I tend not to buy anything in Ballarat as it's the most expensive joint 300km in any direction. Wanted some 7x57 bullets once, Refisch had a box of
Federal for $85 or something around there. Drove on to a gunshop in
Melbourne snd got the same box for about $35.

J & A Shooting in Horsham usually have Wano, or try Roger Mowbry at Pedersoli Australia. I do an annual drive down to Adelaide now for Swiss, must do another soon as I'm nearly out of 4F and can never have enough 2F!

For caps try the same folks, but they are hard to find. If I was still shooting cappers I'd nearly buy 1000 from Rebel and pay the hazmat fee.

Hi fellow shooters! I am pretty new to the smokepole thing, been shooting Military Surplus rifle for 30yrs, mainly competition.
I have just bought an Armi Sport Kentucky 45 caplock rifle, which seems to be pristine condition. Now the hunt begins for powder and caps!
Hope to learn from you all!!
Thanks for having me!
Dear Maxjon . Quite where abouts might help as there are a good few agreeable BP shooters your side of the ditch .
