That's expensive nitrate on www.kno3.com... 12.80 for 500g? That works out to about US$25 for 1.1lbs (on the site they say that 500g is 1.2lbs: it's not as 1,000g is 2.2lbs...) ! Greg sells it for US$ 2.17 for one pound.

For legal reasons, KNO3 is one of the only things that Greg can't ship overseas. I ordered CSM+B and K2SO4 from Greg and I get my KNO3 here locally by ordering it in a pharmacy. Costs me about US$13 for 500g.

Still more expensive that Greg by quite a bit but half of what that site sells it for... Try a pharmacy!

KNO3.co.uk sells 500g for 8.00 shipped (also cheaper for larger quantities)

Labpak sells 500g for 2.60 but has a minimum order value of 50!

But to answer your question, Greg has shipped to quite a few people in Europe and all I've heard have been good things. I was very pleased with his service and I had my order within five or six days of the order. You have to email him though so he can set up a special webpage for your order as his normal order page does not handle international orders.

And, as mentioned, he cannot ship KNO3.

Perhaps KNO3 is considered a bomb making component? Like one US lb is going to be a threat. Its good to know that we are all so much safer since Greg can't mail this stuff. On the other hand, I definately recommend Watson as a PMDD source. He is selling only to the hobbiest as a curtesy. His profession is in the hotel business, I believe.
