Shooters World Multi-Purpose Black Sulfurless Powder
« on: November 18, 2020, 09:46:16 AM »
While I normally shoot real black powder occasionally I use a sub, like Black MZ now discontinued.  I just became aware of a "new" bp sub from Shooters World called "Multi-Purpose Black  Sulfurless Powder".   It is available from Grafs and Midsouth and is described as being made by APP.  Has anyone tried it?  Is it the same as the old APP?  Cost is about $22 lb.

To answer the OP question ... Shooters World imports their products from Europe

They may well have APP produce the Black sub  for them  ,,, I've heard its Black MZ rumor several times.

APP's  Black MZ was produced for Aliant , and now discontenued.

when planets align...do the deal !

 :)  Well Guys and Gals   ;)

APP Ain't cheap.  No doubt is more expensive than BP.  Since I shoot a TON of APP, I spread the pain.  I order in bulk.  Normally, at major match time, the APP folks run a special of "Case Lots" and I order at reduced price for a single Haz Mat fee.  That way when I open a bottle, there is no real sticker shock.  I would do the Shooters World version of Black MZ the same way were I using it.

Most places I hang out, the only way to get BP is in case lots as well.  None of the LGS are willing to shell out for a "Magazine" for storage of BP.  And . . .  since I'm greedy, I keep my cases of APP all for myself.  Nanny Nanny Poo Poo!!

Depends on your mission.  For SASS matches I shoot only Holy Black.  I do buy it in case lots only and split it up with my pards.  Hopefully we Cowboy Action shooters are not arming themselves in response to the media hype of civil unrest.  This also will pass.

Ah yes, substitutes. I have tried most of them. Real black works best. Best.

I always write the date on top of a bottle of powder when I open it.  I still have a bit of APP left in a bottle I opened in 2012.   :)
