Well this is an old post but what the heck? I am in Alabama and NOBODY carries that black powder substitute. I would like to get a pound and try it out after reading about it.

I had a chance to buy a pound of this powder a couple of weeks ago. It is expensive but does shoot great and cleans easy. It also shoots accurate in two of my rifles so far. Give it a try........

Thanks, gunner69;
I'll have to check it out. I'm having trouble finding Pyrodex.

Took a trip to Columbus, GA, today and purchased another pound of Black MZ. Been raining a lot in Alabama in the last few weeks so haven't had a chance to shoot much.

Enjoy the shooting. Let us know how it went.

Black MZ is clean burning and easy to clean up. I don't shoot powder pellets myself, I like loose powder. With the humidity (sp?) in Alabama I need all the help I can in keeping my firearm as free of corrosion as I can. Seems that Black MZ is going to be my powder of choice.

Can anyone tell me who makes the Black MZ powder sub?
Where they are located or how to contact them?

I live next door In Ms. and have no problem with real black or Pyrodex.
