This seems to be the new business model of a local gun shop near me. They are giddy over the number of black rifles they can sell and pretty much ignore anything or anybody else..

Here in Idaho, we finally have H4831sc, RL22 and 19, Varget, 7828, some Retumbo and a few other flavors holding on the shelves. Haven't seen any Ramshot Magnum or Hunter in about a year. Our persistent shortage is bullets....no new Bergers or LRABs on the shelves in a long time.

I would think that'd be a good fit for either Retumbo or RL33 or maybe Norma MRP... .?

MRP is one powder that seems to be readily available and I'm thinking I may have to look to trying some of it next year.

If I could make it work in my bigger bores it would sure save some worries and aggravation.
