Feed supply stores carry it in 50 poundbags. It is used as a powerful fertalizer and some stump removers are noting but saltpeter.

Hmmm I am not sure?? Well if you buy it from a farm supply store it will most likely be all saltpeter and if ther were a very small amount of phosphates they might not do much (don't hold me on this)

I see it on ebay from time to time, if you got your directions from http://www.cannonfuse.com/ i think there are links there to get the stuff you need.

You can get it as stump remover. There is a video on www.bcvids.com that explains everything.

However you posted this in the ammo discussion area which leads me to believe you want to shoot this. DO NOT SHOOT FLAMING PROJECTILES SUCH AS THIS!!! Doing so makes your legal spudgun into a destructive device.
