Default Best place for blackpowder shooting supplies ?

Self explanatory thread title
Best place to buy Muzzleloader round ball , bullets , powders etc etc
Preferably in bulk not small retail amounts like Cabelaís sells.
Specifically 58 cal and larger projectiles.

If you mean ďBestĒ in Alberta,Caroline Supplies has about the best selection of traditional ML gear and supplies that Iíve seen,and Iíve worked/travelled all over Alberta and usually make it a point to stop in and visit every gun shop/Outdoor store I come across.

Best place to get bulk stuff, except powder, is Track of the Wolfe from the States, especially for stuff bigger than 50 calibre. Even with exchange and shipping you would be hard pressed to match the prices here in Canada. Rusty Wood Trading, Hill Folk Muzzle Loader Supplies and a few others are good to deal with if they have stock. You can get lots of powder from Caroline supplies, they are the Alberta Goex distributor, but they are not cheap. If you go the to BP shoot at Sherwood park range, or the Calgary gun show you can often find BP for about half what Caroline wants.

Do yourself a favour, get some lee mold's and a melting pot and cast your balls, and mini's. It's hard to find better selection and prices than from Titan in the US. www.titanreloading.com/

Aaaah ok,well I doubt youíll find any Pedersolli rifles in Caroline,or even pills larger then .58 but worth a shot?
That said,they usually do stock a pretty decent selection of traditional accoutrements,RBs and minis,and one of the very few places in AB Iíve found that stocks real BP,usually has Goex and Elephant.....seems nobody carries any of that traditional stuff anymore,if they have any ML gear at all itís usually modern inline gear.
As posted above,Track of the Wolf is probably your best bet for ordering stuff online,I canít even think of any place in Canada,but I havenít kept up to speed on it lately,my Hawken has been gathering dust for a few years now and Iíve probably got enough supplies to last me a lifetime at this rate.I barely even use my bow anymore...DAMN YOU ALBERTA with your long and generous centerfire seasons,LOL!

If you are closer to Calgary,try Proline down on 9th Ave,he usually has real BP and a bit of traditional gear also.
