Many black powder shooters going to substitute powders like
Pyrodex because is safer and doesnt have the same
regulations like black powder

Black powder is a Class 1 explosive and has very strict shipping and storage regulations

Pyrodex and other substitutes is Class 3 (same as fire works) and can be shipped and stored without all the
regulatory overhead

Pyrodex isn't reliable in flintlocks and drum and nipple type percussion guns.

I have no interest in the inline modern stuff and black powder is harder to find every year.
