    Yes, it's available, not plentiful. Google "black powder cartridges". There are a few custom loading companies. Expensive. I e-mailed one company for some BP .455 Webley rounds, they replied "box of 50 is $75.00 + S&H. This is enough to buy a complete basic reloading outfit plus the powder. But there are people who simply do not wish to reload and will pay this kind of price to shoot their guns. I can't remember the name of the company I contacted.
