Re: Black Powder

Muzzleloading used to be fairly cheap to go out and shoot... not so much the case anymore.

Re: Black Powder

I got a pound the other day for 21 bucks, will probably stock up on it when I get the chance.

Re: Black Powder

Just got a pound of 2f at Dixons and it was $20

Did some calculations, 7000 grains in a pound. It you shoot 70grain charges you'll get 100 shots a pound. Add in round balls and patches plus a little 4F and its still cheap when you consider how much regular ammo has gone up
