Good grief! Cabela’s up here wants $60.00 for a pound of Goex FFFg! Oh, pardon me - $59.95! Arent ya supposed to at least kiss a guy before ya do something like that to him? Sheesh! Gawd, I hate those corporate whores! Shopping around… I can get it for $39.00 lb… but then I gotta tack shipping onto that.
Options might be Pyrodex and Triple 7… $29.00/lb. But gee whiz… I bought my black powder guns because I want to shoot black powder just as our ancestors did. I love the old ways and reconnecting with them is about doing things the same way they did. I like the stink, the smoke and the grime! These cleaner burning ‘replica powders’ don’t cut the mustard!
When I got into this I originally regarded my Spaghetti Plains Rifle and my percussion pistol as toys… but then I began to see what could be done with them and started chewing through my supplies. It’s time to stock up again in a very volatile market these days.
