It's not the humidity, it's the lube. Do what DD does.

August, You have received a ton of info, some good and some not so good by trying to say switch over to a play like powder. I hope you stay with the only true powder made and leave the fakes alone.
They don't have the fire, sparks or even the same sound. They only produce smoke.
If you want smoke then buy a cigar.
The post by w44wcf on the Swiss is correct and it is the best powder when it comes to fouling but that price keeps me from using it on a regular bases.
Anytime you have fouling at the end of the barrel, it's telling you to look at the lube. I also read what you said about the humidity and I only wish I could see that humidity in Louisiana come July- August.
The new batch of KIK that is sold by Powder Inc has shown some good results with accuracy and clean up. w44wcf did find that it still is not up to Swiss standards but is an improvement over standard Goex.
I have been using it with great results.
Have you ever used a lube by the name of NASA? I know you are on the Cast Boolits forum at times and should know about it. If you have not then let me know and I will send you some free of charge to try.

NASA lube is good stuff but the main problem with it is the supplier, up in Alaska. He is on his own time schedule and sometimes things take a while. Plus it looks like he is selling out most of his business, so not sure if the NASA is going to be available in the future. He only takes e-mail, he decided to go offline a few months ago, but if he is going to still make it it is good lube for BP.

As some have mentioned above, the problem is the low humidity.

I shoot black powder (the real stuff) for every match, a couple matches a month, year round.  The extreme heat and extreme cold are the only times I have any problems with fouling.

I've experimented with different black powder brands (no subs for me), lube type and bullets.  The best solution was much easier and simpler.

For CAS matches, my solution is very simple and works extremely well:  Just use a little pump mist/spray bottle full of water and mist the muzzle end after each stage with a couple pumps of water.  The fouling absorbs the moisture and stays soft, no need to clean it out every stage.

The key to shooting black powder is to keep the fouling moist.  A couple blasts of water mist does that great!

Springfield, You and I have been good friends for about 5 years now, but you are not up to current stats on the NASA and Bullshop.
I have contacted Tina(Dan's wife who has always been a part of the business) first by snail mail back in Nov. of last year and ordered what NASA I needed. She sent it out very fast. Several members of the CAST BOOLITS forum have made several purchases of the Bullplate Sprue lube.
She is now back on the Internet at the same address as is listed and I just made another order this past week for more NASA for some local friends. She answered my mail with in two hours of it being sent.
She advised me that she is no longer selling the NASA in stick form as she just sold the last ones. NASA is still being sold in block form by the pound for $17.50 plus shipping via THE USPS.
She is using the sells to make a living so as you have a business and understand that she needs for everyone to know that the products are available at this time.
Take Care Your Friend and Customer David

That's good to know. All I saw was her selling stocks of bullets and lube and selling off many boxes of raw wheelweights. Also a few reloading items like lubrisizers.  Guess she is just getteing rid of extra stock and not selling off the business. I still have 15 bottles of sprue lube so I haven't done business with them lately. They have always had a superior product at a good price. Thanks for the update, nice to know she is back on the internet, that has to help business.

You may have a couple of problems.  Your bullet may not be holding enough lube, and your lube may not be up to snuff.  I would try Dastardly Dan's Big Lube bullet and then some SPG lube. If you haven't already, slug your barrel too!  It works for me!  Good shooting!  Bob

 Yes bullshop's Nasa will help keep fouling soft and rehydrates easily even in the low humidity and hot temps we shoot in occasionally.
 As to the Nasa's availability, I just ordered a couple pounds from them and when I emailed back that it had been recieved I thanked them , and conveyed my best wishes to them in their future endeavors, and that I hoped to be able to find a lube I liked as well.
 Dan his ownself wrote back and said" do not dispair friend we have hopes of going right on with the bullet lubes, only it will be marketed thru a 3rd party and not direct".
 So hang in there bullshop lube fans, all is maybe not lost, but just incase ordering a couple of pounds right now, surely won't hurt you or them...

 As to the op's problem with the 38 special, get off the 2f, it's to slow for that small cartridge, and going to slow with bp can cause as much fouling problems as anything. Go with some 3f and you're fouling out problems may not be solved completely in high temp low humidity situatioons, but it won't be as common as it is with the 2f.
