Default BP brand

I only shoot inlines and a golfball mortar.
Has anyone ever heard of Gearhart-Owens Superfine black powder ? I just bought a lb of FFG and a lb of FFFG at an estate auction. Both were priced at $4.95/lb. Seems to shoot just fine.
Thanks, Dennis

They bought Dupont back in 1972. Labeled under GO (Gearhart-Owens), GOI (Gearhart-Owens Industries), and then after the split GOEX (Gearhart-Owens EXplosives Co.) around 1976. It's changed hands, names variations, and locations over the years.

In 2009 Hodgdon acquired GOEX Powder, Inc., located in Minden, Louisiana.
