I found some powder. I went to the town next to me this morning for a Doc visit and stopped at a big sporting goods store there. They had some powders. They even had some VARGET. Trouble was these people have lost their minds. They wanted $33.00 a pound and that would make it $36 and change after tax. They can keep it.

My LGS sells Hodgdon powders for $28.99-30.99 /lb. Beats what they want for Vihtavouri @ over $55.00 / lb...

Re: Is any body as frustrated as I am? No Powder to buy!

I am new to reloading and have been trying to find some of the magical Varget to try...

I have had no luck after looking hard for a couple months.

I went into Walmart right after work on tuesday and was blown away that they actually had a bunch of powder on the shelf.... But no Varget. I grabbed some 4350 and was shooting the breeze with the clerk. He said " Yeah, we got in 12 pounds of Varget at 2:00 this afternoon and the same guy that always comes in, came in at 2:15 and bought all twelve pounds and he brought two friends and bought us out of 9mm ammo too... It's like he knows when we are getting a shipment, everytime, without fail he is here 15-20 minutes after our shipment comes in. I wish I could just tell him no so some other customers would have a chance..."

I could have murdered someone... They had TWELVE POUNDS AT 2:00 O'CLOCK, and when I got there at 4:45, it was all gone. If that guy woulda been there I probably woulda stomped him out in a fit of rage. I was so pissed... I have looked on gunbroker and other places that you can get it and it is double the price, and I am sure that's what this fuckhead is doing... flipping it online... Unbelievable...
