Yes time will tell. I use BH209 more then anything else and it's way to pricy in Canada now.

I would say yes if the demand is there but right now most are not using BH209 just due to the cost .80 and tax for 10 ounces is steep

Cheers

well I'll keep using it - a superior propellant. No different than paying extra for any great/quality product in this outdoor past time LOL..

 

Moisture resistant, no water required for cleanup (just use my 12 gauge kit for cleaning), no bore butter, reliable, great performance re shooting, etc.

Absolutely right Gary... it doesn't have the hydroscopic features that can / will ruin reg black powder quickly if left not sealed air tight

And I would be also if I shot ML. One thing about me Gary is I don't mind paying extra for something better or I like but the couple of ML guys I know are so tight they need WD40 on their joints

Cheers

I took a teaspoon of the stuff & put it in a ziploc bag with about 2 tsp of water. Left it for a week. poured it out on some newspaper, waited approx 30 mins and lit it & it flashed. Unreal.

As far as BH209 goes ... it would have to get mighty expensive before I would stop using it. It already is expensive ... but like everything else ... you pay for quality. Maybe the price will go down with the new acquisition. biggrin.png

Londero will likely be the next spot I get it from. Have ordered powder and primers from them before with good results. Shipping was reasonable and came quick.
