I just got off the phone with Jon @ and here's the scoop on powder cost and current in-stock availability ...

Swiss $27.00/lb - 1FG, 1.5 FG, 4FG

Swiss Caviar (this is special spherical black powder) $29/lb 2FG

Schuetzen $18.5/lb - 2FG,  3FG

Goex $20/lb - 1FG

Goex Ole Ensford $22/lb - 1FG

Powder can be purchased as little as a 1lb can, and on up to a 25lb or 50lb case.

Shipments can be of mixed brands and granulations.

Shipping is Fed Ex based on weight and zip code - This is dependent on shipping distance and will include a HazMat fee AND a "Covid-19 handling" fee.  Jon estimates between $70 and $120 for a 25lb carton.  Clearly, the more you buy the cheaper per pound the powder becomes.  This is where group buys are the way to go.

As an example, 25lbs of Schuetzen 2F or 3F will cost $462.50 +$70 to $120 shipping, for a final cost of between  $532.50 and $582.50, for a final cost per pound of $21.30 to $23.30.

CCI 4 Wing musket caps / RWS 4 Wing  $ 100/ 1000
Rws 1075+ (works for # 10 or # 11) $ 90 / 1000
