Anyone know where I can get varget at a reasonable price?
That's funny. At this point you need to be thankful to be able to find it.
Where are you located?
Local high end gun shop is selling two 8lb buckets for 250. I almost choked when I saw that.
T3 in Valdosta Ga has about 15 one pound kegs for about 30 bucks a piece. How far you want to travel?
Pricing on powders (from what I see at least) is remaining pretty stable. Problem is, finding it.
We have all become accustomed to the 'I want it now so I get it now' philosophy. At present, that don't work and probably will never work again.
What you need to do is pre-plan and order what you need and exhibit some patience.
That's only $15.63 /pound.....My local store sells it for $28.99 / pound, and they DON'T carry the 8 lb kegs... I wouldn't be complaining if I were you.
Also, can I get that store's name & number? It's for....ummmm....personal reasons....Yeah that's it...personal reasons...
If I'm a betting man, I'd say they're asking $250 each for those 8 pounders...
Will the real price please stand up??
In reality, unless you are loading for a potential spate of civil unrest, a pound of powder should do just fine.
I don't know about the o.p., but I like to keep a couple of hundred loaded for each rifle I have a load for. I also keep enough on hand to re-stuff that ammo at least once. That eats up just a bit of gun cotton.
Sorry, but you are the last person i would have expected to make an Eminem quote. LOL. Now i have "the real slim shady" stuck in my head. gun)
Keep an eye open on powder valley, third generation shooting supply, and midsouth shooters supply.
Yes, it does. I have so many 223's loaded I don't think I could shoot them all before I die..... Got on a 223 kick a couple years back and loaded a gob. Looked in the ammunition cabinet. Some are dated 2009. Hundreds hell, thousands. Same with 308's. Cabelas loves me, I buy lots of ammunition boxes.
Interestingly, I don't own an AR, just a Savage 223 bolt rifle and my benchrest 223.
I'm a suker for a good deal on brass and usually Wideners has good deals on 308 and 223 LC OFMB. Been known to buy a couple thousand at a crack.
IMO, you can't have enough 45 Auto and 45LC's.
I've done a bit of business with wideners too. Usually rifle pills or mil. surp. powder.
I don't even have a semi- auto pistol. I've got a bolt action 22-250 and a revolver in 44.
Got an AR and 1K+ ammo for the little pop gun though. She holds her own to 1/4 mile on peeps with 75's.
