Re: Where can I get loose black powder?
Black powder is getting very hard to find in many parts of the country.When I left Kalifornia over 10 years ago, I was unable to find it anywhere. If your dealers carry Pyrodex pellets, they should carry cans of Pyrodex powder, also. Several other black powder substitutes are out there, also. Look around the gun shops and the indoor ranges. I've found it at indoor ranges which don't allow black powder weapons in the door.
Black powder is classed as an explosive. The black powder substitutes are classed as propellants. That is the difference in the rules for shipment and storage.
