Just received my order for black powder that was placed 4 months ago. I will never order powder from Midway again. Graf and Son still the lowest price and turn around time is great Ordered 5 lbs from both Midway side order was om hand when I ordered but later was put on back ordered, 4 days after ordered Midway was also higher on cost. For all that say Midway is great, good luck Graf and Son orders are shipped within 10 days as this is stated in their web page when placing order. :doh:

Interesting, I ordered RWS caps and powder within the last month on different orders and had both within a week. Shipping was reasonable and HazMat fee was only 12 clams.

Graf's has been my go-to for powder for a long time: fast shipping and they don't hose you on hazmat or shipping fees. I've never had an issue with Midway, but I've also never ordered bp from them.

The only time I order from Midway is when I can't find it somewhere else. Their shipping is outrageous. Then they send by the slowest and cheapest USPS option available.
Indeed!
They literally ship anything that I order, PAST my community on a UPS truck, another one hundred and fifty miles to New Jersey. When the stuff gets to NJ, the UPS people put the item in the US Mail to come back down to Maryland.
MidwayUSA must have some sort of weird shipping deal with UPS because there is a UPS shipping hub less than 50 miles from my house.

Would make better sense to order powder from places who specialize in black powder sales. They could use the business.

Midway has lots of other stuff to sell and make money on.

Midway can't possibly be worse the Dixie, I ordered a Kentucky pistol from them well over a month and haven't heard a thing from them.

I put in an order with Dixie on 12/19/20 and received it 1/20/21. Hopefully the order I put in on 1/3 will arrive in the same time frame. Dixie takes a long time to fill the order. Midway fills it quick then sends it the slowest way possible and charges outrageous shipping fees. I have ordered parts from other suppliers at a $5.00 higher cost than Midway and had shipping come out cheaper and faster making the total cost lower than Midways.

My Dixie orders are some of the fastest I get from anyone

Same here. Been just 16 days since I ordered a handgun. Not a word or a courtesy email from them. My order still shows “in shipping”.

I order powder and caps from Crater Fireworks out of IL. Never had a problem. I also like the pens and scratch pad paper they send with it.

Glad I saw this, they are within driving distance for me.
