Default Black Powder FF Goex?

I have a 54 cal. Tompson center Hawkin and have always used the FF Goex powder with good results.
But now it is very hard to find at the local gun shops. I have tried a few other types of powder but my groups are not as tight as with the Goex. Can someone please point me in the right direstion as what to use with good results. Thanks
.535 round ball - .010 patch - 100 gr. ff Goex.

I would say FFFg, but if you cannot find FFg, then you will have the same problem.
Try an internet search of he gun shops within 100 miles of where you live, and call them to see if they stock it. You might have to make a long trip and buy 4 or 5 lbs at a time to make the trip worthwhile. I had the same problem when I got into blackpowder shooting, but calling around found me 2 shops within 50 miles that stocked it.
