    If you are in need of Varget Wideners reloading has it in stock. 1# and 8# jugs.

    Just an FYI

    I guess this might be a dumb question but why is it so hard to find?

    Why is it just in high demand or what? Not that long ago I was going to load up some lighter bullets in my .243 and wanted to use varget and couldnt find it anywhere, I found everything else but varget.

    Here in Greenville sc we have a small gun shop that seems to have it allways. I asked how the sales are and they said "great".

    I just thought someone might be looking . One pound cans have been hit or miss here and seldom matching lots #'s . Now I have an eight pound jug ...
    should last a little while.

    Varget is very a versitile powder, 223, 22-250, 243, 308 all seem to shoot well with some load of Varget. Also, it's small grain size meters wells if you dump charges and it's not temp. sesitive so it's a favorite in many shooting applications.
