    I'm having a hard time finding Retumbo in the 8 lb kegs, so I purchased one US 869 just in case (better to have any powder than NO powder!). Where can I possibly find Retumbo in 8 lb kegs??? THANKS!

    I can get it but it won't be cheap. I have to pay HAZMAT to me and then to you. That's an extra $45 + shipping twice.

    Thanks Kirby.

    I'll have to wait until I pay my credit card off this month though because I have racked up a bill consisting of 200 pieces of .338 Lapua brass, the 8 lber US869, and 1000 300gr Matchkings! Next comes 16 lbs of Retumbo, and then the Schneider 5P (preferred) or Mike Rock 5R barrel HV barrel, and possibly a change in my current McMillian stock (probably sell it for a Tactical style).
