I have noticed im using a ton of this stuff since i started. why cant i find anywhere that sells 50lb like potassium nitrate comes?

places like skylighter are taxing people bad. I found one place that sells for 6.00 a lb over 10 lb and im considering to grab as much as i can. Is that probably my best bet?

I pay $5.99 for 10#. That is good for me because the warehouse isn't to far from me so I go pick up what I need. I don't know if he would sell for less in larger quantities or not. If you want name/phone # to check pm me.

As of this past July, Crossout was selling 10 pounds of perc shipped for $55, but an even better deal was 20 pounds perc plus 10 pounds parlon for $168 shipped in the same box.

 

I last dealt with him around November and his stuff was top-notch and shipped fast. Easy to do business with. Check his older 2016 posting in the Agora section of this site. Obviously, prices climbed a bit in 5 years (originally $35/10 pounds!), but updated prices are still very reasonable. Seems to have a busy schedule, so PM him a polite inquiry and see how it goes. Last order with him was a combined #10 perc/#5 parlon "half order" for a decent price. You might be able to work out some higher-quantity pricing.

 

Other pyro sites are getting $7/lb for small quantities, not including shipping. Contact them and perhaps they'll swing a discount for #10 orders. Skylighter is the hugest ripoff at $10/lb!! Plus shipping. That's ridiculous. Unless you're desperate, or delirious, it never pays to purchase anything from Skylighter. Ever. Milled KNO3 for $9/pound is another example of stupid ridiculous from that outfit.

I sent Crossout a pm last month and never heard back, so I am starting to think he's not doing that anymore. I would like to find a decent supplier myself, so if anyone has a suggestion? As for KNO3, I get mine from Dudadiesel.  They recently raised their prices a little, but at $21.70 for 10# (plus shipping) it's still pretty good and they are fast

Its typically sold as 110# drums in bulk. If you have a ATFE license you can purchase it from service chemical.

The easiest way to get it is in person at PGI or a regional club meet.  You'd probably want to get into contact with someone like Karl Maerz (http://ubpyro.com/) or Tim Seekon (https://www.pyrochemsource.com/) for bulk.  Shipping larger quantities starts to get tricky.  Not everyone ships entirely by the book.


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

Thank you guys i read all the posts. I did find a place here in my state that charged me 5.99 for over 10lbs so i grabbed some. Im not familiar with crossout and thank you so much for the ubypyro url,i never heard of them till now, and i agree skylighter is a ripoff,however i do find certain  things now and then on there like,the magnesium turnings they sell i like to grab sometimes.

Here is his post, you can pm him and he will get up with you when he has a chance. He is very busy right now so do not be surprised if it takes a week to hear from him.
