Sodium Nitrate sourcing?

Hey, so I'm having some trouble finding sodium nitrate that's a nice powdery consistency. Only things I've seen online or at a local ceramic supply were either pelletized to about the size of small BBs, or crystalline similar to coarse table salt. I was hoping to find a powered consistency like I'd gotten years ago which I found online somewhere but can't find again. It clumped up a bit, but scraping it against a screen easily got it powdery again. Should I just buy a cheap coffee grinder and grind up the BBs? (I have one for K dichromate but that ONLY gets used for that now, def not for coffee anymore..) Or anyone know a source of some finer NaNO3 that I can order somewhere. Thanks in adv.
