Sportsman's Warehouse in SC on my way to FL. I got it back in the beginning of August. But the guy behind the counter told me that was their regular price not a sales price. I just checked and right now they are temp sold out. You may want to call the SC store and see if they have any they can send you.

I'm VERY impressed with BMZ powder & that's NOT an easy task for smoke pole powder as I've been a Savage smokeless owner & lover for over 12yrs. Earlier this summer I drug out my 25+ yr old Knight Wolverine thinking my 16yr old son would be using it this fall. (I've since gotten him a Savage smokeless I got a deal on) I researched the newer powders & BMZ was the one I chose. BH209 wasn't safely recommended in the Wolverines plunger type action. (I used 90grns over a Barnes 250 Expander MZ fired by T7 209s)

I was truly impressed with the ease that BMZ cleaned up with only using patches sprayed with Windex Vinegar. After I was done shooting I shot some brake cleaner on a patch & down the bore but it wasn't needed, the patch came out spotless. I didn't tear down the rifle, I just swabbed it with the Win-Vin patches. After 2wks I tore the rifle down to inspect it & found it spotless. ANY powder that performs properly, cleans up without tearing the rifle down & is easily & reasonably obtained, what's not to like about it?

I suppose were I shooting a magnum inline, enclosed breech gun like a Encore, Impact, Optima etc... sure I'd use max charges of BH209. But for the rest of the front stuffers (including side locks, plunger actions, BP handguns etc...) it's nice to have a modern substitute that is essentially non-corrosive & doesn't require complete tear down to properly clean such arms after use. IMHO that makes BMZ very attractive!

Alliant Black MZ does not have the appearance of "gravel". Nor is it dust.


On the left is a photo of powder from my current can of Alliant Black MZ. On the right is Goex Pinnacle 2F.

Not to worry Flint I have 50 lbs now. That should hold me over.
As you southern boys say, Y'all can have the rest. LOL
But I must say I do like that store. Even better than Cabelas and no where near as pricey. I'm going to be stopping there again come January and spend a bit more time there and likely build up my credit card balance!
