What happened to the price of Goex?

Dunklebergers in Monroe County wants 29.99 per pound!

I just finished my last tin of 2F I bought for 16.95, granted that was 6 years ago but geez!

Does anyone know of a place I can buy at a sane price? Prefer Monroe County, or 3D if possible.

Thanks,

Tom D.

ATF reclassified all sporting powder as Explosives. Ups charges a Hazmat fee and shipping by ground only. Dealers have more permits and storage requirements. Supply & Demand.
You can Buy from case from local Distributors up to 50# and save $$

The ATF places a $500 yearly fee on dealers. So if a dealer only sells ...25...50 pounds, do the math of what a pound has to be increased to recover the fee.

Re: What happened to the price of Goex?

Last time I went to buy a can it was $30. Had been a couple years since I had bought some and it was something like $12 then. I just went and ordered a couple cans each of 2,3,and 4f. Got it for $20 a can shipped. If I knew someone to split an order with it would have been cheaper. Blew my mind at $30 a can. Wife heard me mumbling to myself the whole way out if the store to the truck haha

Re: What happened to the price of Goex?

Thanks Guys! Looks like Graf & Sons has it for 16.99 a pound, 7.95 shipping, and 30.00 Haz-Mat fee for up to 50#....Can order a single pound but who would at $54.49 per?

A case is 25# with fees and shipping its $462.25 per case, or $18.49 per Pound.....Looks like I need to find some friends
