Any black powder in Georgia, SC, or NC?

Does anyone know of a place that sells black powder in any of these states?

You can try Bass Pro if there's one nearby. They don't have it out on the floor, but check with the gun sales staff. Usually kept in a container in the back. You can do better online.

I went by the Bass Pro in Atlanta and also one in Birmingham and they both had none. The one in Atlanta told me that Goex went out of business (no joke) and Bass Pro no longer carries black powder due to the cost of the license.

I could buy online but I really wish I could buy in less than $100 increments.

Last time I went to Bass Pro, they wanted about $30 a can. Ouch.

Grafs wanted $15 a can.

Guess which one I stocked up on? I'd mail order in bulk before giving my money to the Bass Pro scalpers.

Is that with, or without hazmat and shipping fees? Last I checked, it was $15.99 for Grafs name brand, and they were mostly out of stock. With shipping and hazmat, the price goes up fast, unless you plan to buy bulk and spend a lot anyway.

Speaking of their name brand is it worth getting that over Goex which is only $3 more?

Find a fellow BP shooter and split a 25 pound case from powder inc. Me and a couple of buds did this several years ago. I still have powder left.

https://powderinc.com/black-powder/ Total of $460 shipped

25 pounds of Grafs powder will cost you $418 shipped. You just have to decide if Goex is worth the extra amount.

You really need to call around.


Cherry's is in NC - call them and ask them if they know of any local sources for powder. They sell a ton of BP guns:

http://www.cherrys.com/ped_rif1.htm

This place sells lots of BP guns in NC making me think they might carry actual BP. But you need to call them.

https://www.hyattgunstore.com/black-powder/

Possibilities:
http://smokymountainshooters.com/

http://www.younggunsinc.com/
http://www.triplejguns.com

https://www.yellowpages.com/raleigh-...l-black-powder

Note being overseas, lots of these sites block my IP address.
