    I used to buy it at the Bass Pro Shop, up off 1604 near Six Flags.
    I’ve been gone for a few years, so that may have changed.

    It is not, unfortunately. Nor, even, at the Powderhorn.

    When did the federal government change the definition? I would like to see that in the federal document so if anyone can point that out to me I would be obliged.

    Ditto:SunCity: Try 'Powder.Inc' online; larger orders save money. A club or group of shooters can save by getting 25 and 50 # orders. Contact them ask how to go about ordering. I was the order guy for our club. once there were enough to get 25 we'd order. When I got the order, calls were made the guys picked up their portions.

    Many people can’t afford or don’t have the space for such large orders. If not Grafs is a great place.

    What he was saying that if you do a group buy with other shooters you can take advantage of the savings and you portion of the group buy could be as small as you want it to be. You still get to take advantage of great prices that way. I have done many group buys over the years, it's the best way to get what you want at a reasonable price.

    For sure. But it seems unless you are around people who attend events, compete, or reenact there’s not many people. I’ve known none except my father who lives a day’s drive and shoots Pyrodex if he does, and it’s not enough for him to buy more than maybe a few pounds. My friends think I’m weird for liking it.

    If buying from PowderValleyInc, it does not all have to be black powder. They will allow you to mix smokeless, primers, caps, ammo, bullets, cleaning patches - anything that they sell. Just about every black powder shooter I know also shoots modern stuff and needs supplies for that as well. Up to 48# and they don'y care what that 48# consists of.

    Another for Graf & Son. They have different brands and will mix match and ship rapidly any amounts. I always order five pounds and it takes about a week.
