I would like to find a retailer who will sells black powder. Not Pyrodex, Triple 7, etc., but real black powder. The way I see it, if you're going shoot shoot a traditional firearm (I shoot a Hawken), then you should use a traditional propellant. I recently moved from the east coast where black powder is relatively easy to obtain (perhaps because of the numerous war re-enactments), but I have found no one in Washington that sells it at all. There are a couple of websites for specialty powder shops that will sell a minimum of 25 lbs at a time, but that is just a wee bit more than I want! Apparently, the hazmat fees are so high that retailers have a hard time making a profit, so they either have to sell it in bulk or not at all. Anyone have ideas?
