Should I buy Reloader 15

I have Varget on backorder, and have enough to last me a few months. I found a place that has about 8 pounds of RL 15. Just wondering if I should try and wait out the Varget or buy the RL 15 and work up a new load.

What would you guys do?

    What caliber are you loading for? I recently switched from Varget to RL15 because it gave me better accuracy in my 22-250. It seems like most people's guns will shoot both powders and achieve similar performance.

    Heck, I would with the way things are now. If 308 and 06 you may find your happy spot!

    Sorry I should have mentioned the caliber. It's for 308s.

    Buy it now !!! No telling when hogdons will ever catch up. Just keep your ,loads out of direct sunlight in warmer temps.

    It's kind of a catch 22, if I have to work up new loads that's more bullets and primers that are hard to come by as well.

    AMEN, we are in tough times. I am lucky, I think I have enough to make it a few more seasons, but if I start shooting more match's, I could get in trouble with my 7mmWSM and .223.
