Cabelas new "insider" method for selling scarce product (offensive)
I wrote recently that I went to the Cabelas site and they had no smokeless powder listed whatsoever. Finding it hard to believe that such a big retailer really had no stock whatsoever (many others here buy that story), I did a bit of investigation.
What I discovered is that they simply stopped listing the powder. They DO have powder and in stock too.... The trick is that you have to know the catalog item number for the material and search for that, else it will not show up.
So those of you who need powder, go to cabelas website and type in IK-210742 where it says "search by keyword or item number". That will get you a listing of the Hodgdon powder they have. When I checked (6:20pm EST 4/25) they had Clays, H380, Retumbo, H50BMG and H100V in stock (1lb) and you can order up to 2lb at a time.
I do not have a current cabelas catalog, or else I would check for other makes of powder and primers, I am sure the same thing is going on with that too.
I don't like that this is a sneaky way to do things. The people who know this trick and have a catalog have probably been getting material while the rest of us cant.
If you need any of the above, go and get yourself up to 2lb. If anyone has the catalog numbers for Reloader powder or primers, please post them in this thread. If you happen to know the item numbers for the 8lb sizes, list that too. One 8lb jug of Varget would be sorely needed at my place at the moment.
