What a deal. I've paid over $500 a case for 2f. Wish they shipped to Canada.Even with HazMat and shipping I'd save $200 a case(25 lb).

Sounds a little high to me. I just bought 25 lbs of Swiss delivered to my door for 500.00
You can get Goex from Deercreek for 12.80 a lb. delivered.  The Swiss came from Clarksville
Rod & Gun.   I think they have Goex delivered for 14.00 a lb.  It pays to check around.
The prices I'm quoting include Haz-Mat & shipping. Be sure to consider this when pricing powder

Sure thats the way to go.  Split the cost and the powder with buddies. Sure is the better way if you shoot a lot. Doesn't spoil like roadkill ::)

That's a good price for 24lbs in bulk.  That's the way I'd buy it and every supplier doesn't sell it that way.

I bought 3 cases of Goex from Craig at Bear River Powder in Evanston, Wyoming.  He has an ad in the March-April Muzzleloader Magazine on page 61.  Phone 307-679-0886, Email: bearriverpowder@allwest.net.  I bought a case of 25 pounds bulk in both Goex 2F and 3F, cheapest way to get it.  You probably have emply cans!

They have great prices on powder.  They are located near Winchester VA.  I believe they do a lot of business with the NSSA guys.  I'm going to be picking a case up during the spring national NSSA shoot, along with various shooting supplies.  Hopefully, I will be able to find a decent priced musket too.  I've been wanting to get into musket shooting.

Hanshi - Frizzen just quoted $320.00 shipped- ie: $12.80 per pound.
$13.96 is still good though - that's what $349 per case come to.

We've paid up to $550.00 - that's $22.00 per pound - in a plastic bag.

Dennis, if you have any travel plans that will take you close to a Goex distributor, you can buy it in 25lb bulk quantities for $7.50/lb.

A year ago I had to go north for a funeral and went up through Pennsylvania, within 30 minutes of the Goex distributor in Moscow, PA that I've used for several years...the bulk buy is 25lbs of loose Goex in a heavy plastic bag inside a Goex carton...they can't ship it that way so its pick-up only.

I bought two 25lb bulk cartons at $7.50/lb, and refilled 50 empty Goex cans when I got home, removed the old date & lot #s from the cans and applied the new date & lot #s.

Thanks that sounds like a great deal. I will check and see where Moscow PA is, I will be going up to Pittsburgh later this year.

Here are all of the Goex Distributors...the lady that runs the one in Moscow is 'Bonnie'...I started with her in 2001 ordering cases (of cans) as she had the best mail order price...but any of the distributors probably have the same or close over the counter bulk prices if one is closer to your travels

Dennis,

Moscow is near Scranton...on the opposite side of the state from Pittsburgh.  Worth the trip up from Dixons..only a little over an hour north of Dixons.

Moscow, PA is the other end of the state.  Just outside of Wilkes-Barre.
The company at Moscow was used by GOEX as a main magazine when they operated the Moosic, PA plant a few miles away.

A friend of mine just drove 2 hours to buy 2 lbs at $32.00 each. You folks are lucky to have it available at less than $20

Somebody ships it that way - in 25 pound plastic bags in the GOEX carton - that's how we buy it.  The carton also will hold 25, 1 pound cans.

No idea what happens in Canada...in fact I thought you'd said you couldn't even order it directly from a Goex Distributor, of which there are at least 2 in Canada.
 ???

At any rate, this US Goex Distributor said they couldn't ship that particular 25lb loose powder configuration...it was over the counter local pickup only...and it doesn't surprise as there is virtually no protection what-so-ever...if any sort of object happens to poke through the simple cardboard catron, there's 25 pounds of loose blackpowder exposed immediately.

Pretty sure if Goex would ship it that way here in the US, that's how all of us would have been buying it for years now at that low price/pound.

The last two times I bought powder I ordered the cases from Powderinc.  Their prices were pretty good but have gone up since then.  If I can buy it in bulk for a lot less it would be well worth making the trip to a distributor - There's one in Va. I know of.  I guess one would also save the hazmat fee by picking it up rather than ordering.  does anyone know for sure if a distributor will ship it in bulk?

Virginia distributor is Backcreek Gun shop. 540.888.3349. He also handles the Swiss and maybe others. Give him a call.

I've already stated that U.S Goex distributors don't ship the loose bulk powder.
And my comments were with a certain assumption that people would also want the lowest cost shipping.
Goex Distributors also ship the least expensive, secure carriers, meaning UPS / FedEx / HSL, etc.
  
However, let me be much more clear in case somebody wants to start trying to split hairs:
The carriers that the Goex Distributors use, like UPS, FedEx, etc, won't ship cases of loose blackpowder in their delivery systems...only cases of BP in their protective cans.

You "CAN" have a plastic bag of loose BP in a cardboard box delivered to you by contracting a "common carrier" freight trucking line but the minimum shipping cost alone is in the neighborhood of $500 - $1000, then the price of the blackpowder...I didn't mention that as I assumed it would not be an attractive option to save money.

Hope this helps...but I think the best thing for you to do is just call a Goex Distributor then you can tell us...
