Where do I go in AZ to get muzzle loading ammunition

If anyone can suggest a brick and mortar source for muzzle loading supplies. Specifically looking for lead balls of various sizes and percussion caps.

    Usually Sportsmans is my go-to. But almost anywhere I’ve been that sells reloading stuff tends to have black powder supplies.

    No, I went to Sportsman's Warehouse, Cabelas and Basspro. Nothing they have comes close, but thanks for the response.

    You can also order in from MidwayUSA if you want to go that route. When I was on the hunt for cap and powder I ended up buying most of it online. Even caps sold out fast. I HAVE seen magnum caps at Legendary Guns, some powder too, but I don't remember what type/brand.
    Edit to add, what balls are you looking for?

    thanks for the response.

    No worries, didn’t know you were after a somewhat unusual size. I haven’t seen hardly any caps in months but those I’ve seen have been Thunderstick in Tucson. Powder has been dicey too. Haven’t seen Pyrodex in some time now.

    Track of the wolf would be my next best guess after Midway, Grafs, etc. Or buy a Lee mold if they make one.

    Bear Mountain out on Southern Ave. in Mesa used to be my "go to" place but I haven't been there in the last year or so and have no idea what they currently stock - if anything.
