Go in together with your friends and split the hazmat and shipping over several pounds. Even if you buy five for yourself and then sell them at a launch.Ok I finally heard back and they stated they should be restocked with Swiss 4F in a couple of weeks.
I would ball-mill and make my own but the only place I have to do that in is the basement of my house and that's a bit of a non-starter for me. So I will pay the redonkulous $$ for shipping.
Yes, that is correct. With a given set of fuels and oxidizers the ratio controls the rate of combustion. Remember that Pyrodex and Triple 7 were designed to fire a projectile either from a cartridge case or from a confined breech. In the world of rockets we are looking for pressure and gas generation.I think that they were optimized for tightly-contained use, in a firearm. If they were optimized to burn most efficiently under low compression, they would be more suitable for Rocketry usage. From what I remember, the Oxidizer / Fuel ratio controls the rate of combustion, right ?
Not everyone uses Goex. In fact, none of the hunters that I know really even cares what brand of BP they use, as long as it's real BP and of the proper sze.That being when the plant was open. Where are they going to stock it from now?
So everyone is going to buy the Swiss stuff now? I still think there is going to be a huge shortage based on the only manufacturer in the USA shutting down.Not everyone uses Goex.

BP subs, though, those are all so different that everyone has a particular favorite.
Everyone always has, mostly, just bought whatever was available without regard to brand.So everyone is going to buy the Swiss stuff now? I still think there is going to be a huge shortage based on the only manufacturer in the USA shutting down.
Fair enough. I can't predict the future.Everyone always has, mostly, just bought whatever was available without regard to brand.
Likely, long term and supposing that the other offshore manufacturers do not increase their production to meet demand, then YES, there will be a shortage.
But pointing to current stocking levels, in the midst of the SINGLE season where domestic demand for BP peaks AND a global logistics melt down as an indicator of future availability, I think, is a false conclusion.
Thanks for the heads-up, Banzai88. There seems to be a 2-pound limit, but the price ($29.99), HAZMAT charge ($12.99), and shipping ($12.90) seem reasonably reasonable, considering the current alternatives.
Thanks for that. Just bought some. The $$$ is...well...wow...but I am now set for a long time even with supplying the USLI team.
sudo rm -rf works, too. Kills root, kills users, but you end up with a sparkling clean machine!
