I know there are no dumb questions. except the one you don't ask? so here goes where can you buy or get black powder from or is pyrodex just as good and where can I get that from? <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/confused.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':confused:' />

Usually at any gun store that sells reloading supplies, or you can order it from Midway or Mid-South Shooters supply or any number of retailers. Be aware though that it is shipped via UPS and they gouge you for a HazMat fee, so if you are only ordering a small quantity, you are going to pay a premium for shipping, making the purchase cost ineffective.



I forget where you are located, but even our local Wal-Mart sells Pyrodex.









Pyrodex is actually my first choice over blackpowder. I find I get more consistent ignition and it does not seem to be as affected by moisture. There is another product on the market that is labeled 777 or Triple 7.









Pyrodex is lableled also as RS and P, which refer to the granularity of the product. RS is for rifle and shotgun and P is for Pistol. You can somewhat equate them, in a loose way to FFg and FFFg granulations when referring to blackpowder.
