Haven't heard of any shipping changes. Maine Powder House still seems to be in business.

All these blackpowder "substitutes" really **** me off. There is NO substitute for blackpowder, and they make it harder to find the real thing. I believe you can order blackpowder from Track of the Wolf also. I feel your pain, it is REALLY hard to find blackpowder in Alaska and I can't get it shipped up here.

This was last updated 1/13; there have been some minor price increases since then. At least it answers the question about whether or not it can be shipped.
