That is a sad affair indeed! None to be had anywhere?!?! I haven’t looked but wouldn’t be surprised if the same is true for me just NW of Austin. Outdoor ranges where I can shoot are an hours drive just to get there.There is no black powder for sale in Bexar County, I'm afraid to say. Don's Gun Shop off 410 on Fredericksburg Road closed. That was the very last brick and mortar shop to get it. Powder Horn--a wonderful gun store!--stocks propellants for modern center fire reloading, and possibly alternates to black powder, but not black powder. Nagel's does not stock black powder. Rumors that Bass Pro has it have proved unfounded.
Anyone who needs black powder in the cradle of the Texas Revolution and site of the Alamo has to buy it online from an outfit in Arkansas or from Idaho. A disagreeable state of affairs. People who've gone to Brady and elsewhere for state-level muzzle loading shoots and meet ups and rendezvous report low attendance, and few sutlers or trailers of folks selling powder where before there were many. A sad state of affairs!
I'm using powder I got from Winchester, VA from a fellow muzzle loader in the N-SSA who agreed to get me some!
Interesting. After a halfhearted Google search a few years back I didn’t find anything. Been buying from Grafs anyway and don’t like fighting traffic, but it’s nice to know of shops with it on hand.
They do, but make sure you take a fat wallet.
At the prices they were normally selling at, I understand why they were not selling much of it. Last time I bought in there it was over $32/#. That's when I started buying on-line.David,
McBrides stopped selling black powder almost a year ago now. I just happened to be in the store when Clayton came up and told me they decided to stop selling it. Said they would make me a deal if I wanted to buy what they had left. I went ahead and cleaned em out of FFFG.
Yeah that was one of the reasons they quit selling it. As well as all the other federal stuff.At the prices they were normally selling at, I understand why they were not selling much of it. Last time I bought in there it was over $32/#. That's when I started buying on-line.
