Swiss?
« on: October 23, 2021, 04:38:27 PM »
So I'm shopping around for Swiss BP, 2F, and I'm finding there are 2 different 2F's? One is the blue label, tother is a brown label. What's the difference? If I'm understanding it, the blue label is a "ball type" which is supposed to meter better.

I wasn't aware of the Swiss Ball Powder either; but here it says it's available in 1,5 Fg and 3 Fg granulations on their website.  They also refer to the Ball Powder as "caviar powder", due to its similarity with Russian Caviar. 
I would strongly advice against spreading "Swiss Caviar" on your slice of toast, though...  ;D

Powder Valley has 2F Goex in stock at this moment, and Olde Ensford. Just ordered 5 lbs of the Goex. Better than no powder.

Olde Eynsford nearly rivals Swiss from my experience.

I just looked and those prices are crazy, plain Goex higher than I bought Swiss and Olde E for just a few months ago shipping included from Powder Inc.

I'm scared what this Goex shutting down is going to do to prices in the future.

From the beginning of this debacle I was wondering how the manufacturor is going to handle the commitments to the US military that they are on the line  for….
I have been trying to chase down any facts and am coming up completely empty.
