Any updates on black powder availability? Thanks, Jerry

Chocktaw Brave:
Still scarce as hens teeth up here in Alaska. I may resort to pyrodex in the cap locks to save the black powder for my flinter.
Pyrodex is avail almost everywhere and I have 5-6 lbs of it.

If you have to use a BP substitute get the Hodgdon 777 according to Mad Monk ( RIP )

Yes- Bill said if he had to use a phony powder, it would be 777. The reason is the others have perchlorates, which generates extremely corrosive fouling.
T7 does not possess this chemical.

As of a week or so ago, Powder Inc. listed on their website that they had a couple of grades of Swiss, a few grades of Shuetzen, and some re-enactor/skirmish type powder.  Of course their website might not be up to date.  They listed the estimated availability of GOEX to be April, but that could be wishful thinking.
