There are a lot of online marketers of black powder supplies. do a google search for several that have the best prices. Just remember that there is a hefty haz-mat fee for powder and primers added to the cost before shipping. It's the same fee for 1# or 20# of powder, so order as much as you can store safely, along with a good supply of caps. I would look around locally first, if you have a cabela's close. Or call some gun shops. Many don't stock black powder anymore becuz of the restrictions, but do stock BP substitutes. Triple777 is pretty good. cleans up with water, too. Not as corrosive as BP, but still needs to be cleaned up after shooting. A lot of good guns have been ruined by guys that neglected their guns after shooting. BP residue can rust a gun in a day or two. It is hydrophilic, meaning it pulls moisture out of the air. But you probably already knew that. If you only want black powder, you'll probably have to suck up the haz-mat fee and order it. Some clubs store their black powder in magazines at their ranges, but you will never get them to sell it to a non-member. Joining may be a fun option. Good luck.

Powder Inc. is the best place online to buy powder with a five pound minimum. The hazmat is figured into the price.

Track of the Wolf and The Possibles Shop are two other places to buy other supplies.

Graf and Sons is a good company to deal with. There is a long delay because of the high demand.

Beeswax and Crisco. Pure olive oil is a good patch lube.

Moose milk, a 50/50 mix of water soluble machinist oil and water. Great patch lube and also for swabbing out the barrel. Like Hawg said, beeswax and Crisco for a bullet lube. Mutton tallow works good also but is hard to find and expensive. I also like TC Bore Butter.

Olive oil is a good patch lube. Bore Butter is good but it gets too runny in summer heat for an overball lube as does plain Crisco.
