M/L Propellants: & Great News

Recently read a fairly good overvue on the subject of M/L propellants, in the 99th. edition of Shooter's Bible, Page 140, that is worth your time to read, just in case you have not read it. A few points of interest comes to mind:

1) Black Powder is classified as a "Class A Explosive" and that is what makes it so difficult to ship, store and sell, let alone find.

2) On the other hand, Pyrodex is classified as "Flammable Solid". Reading between the lines, all others as well and easier to buy.

3) There is a new propellant on the horizon, that promises improved performance over anything currently available and few details are avialable.

4) The writer also states that the future of Muzzleloading, has never looked brighter.

BE SAFE !!!
