On another header topic some were thinking one of several black powder companies had gone under just because they had never heard of them. Hold on folks before you make a statement without asking the question and before answering.

Some of these companies are not out of business, many been around as long as you or longer using several different names , container and labels throughout the year. 

Shown is just one of m,any firms that are still around with their main business switching to modern powders by a different name.

If you click on the links you'll see some powders that are not as popular but still available from these different sources.

If you read this information you'll find these findings at: http://www.norwestcompany.com/comparison.htm


____________________________________________________________________


In this test, KIK brand black powder produced higher velocities than the same volume of both Goex and Elephant black powder in all four test guns. The average velocity produced by KIK brand black powder was 12.4% faster than that produced by the same volume of Goex, and 14.3% faster than that produced by the same volume of Elephant brand. Elephant brand black powder produced lower velocities than either of the other two powders in all 4 guns.

I still have to wonder about KIK.  My 2f came from Powderinc, but now all they are showing is 1 & 1.5f.
