Probably will have to order some from Powder Inc, Graf`s or some other Black Powder suppliers. Not too many places handle regular Black Powder let alone the Swiss.

I tried it years ago.Real nice glaze on grains.Slightly cleaner burn.Don't need as much.Accuracy about the same.

Maybe in your area. Every gun store in my area sells black powder.

That's awesme. Wish it was that way here in my neck of Ohio. I'm surrounded by big box stores that carry nothing but substitute powders. I do have a guy south of me licensed to sell BP, and he does so for a great price out of his home powder magazine. He's still a good 30 minute drive from home, but he's got a good supply.

never seen anyone that carried anything but Goex around here.


Is the benefit of the Swiss that much better than Goex to pay the shipping, if I were to buy it?


Since I now have 3 BP guns, working on getting my great-granddad's Rem 1889 sxs operational and plans to buy/build two more filters I'm thinking I had better plan on stocking up.

Never used it, and never will. I've never had a reason to change from Goex. That's getting expensive enough lately.
