RE: Wal Mart...maybe no more black powder
Where I live, Wal Mart is about the best place to get any black powder shooting supplies. I have noticed even they are aiming more towards the inline shooters as are many of the stores. For some reason, stores seem to forget there are a lot of traditional rifles still being used out there. One sporting goods store I stopped at carried no loose powder, only pellets, no #11 caps just 209's and sabots, no round balls or patches. When I mentioned this to the owner he seemed upset that I would even comment claiming most people shoot inlines....
