    Planning ahead is the wise thing to do. In your case, me thinks you are SOL. Now, I have 16 pounds sitting here and I might sell half.

    yep if you wanted guranteed supply you needed to get an order in six months ago. haven't seen much at online stores in a couple months. have seen a pound or two at local retailers. Best bet is to hit the streets if nobody has any to share. if there are regular deliveries coming in be there early and hope you get lucky. sad but that is the way it goes these days.

    The wal-mart in Clinton In. Has it on a regular basis, along with varget, and a couple of others. I bought 3lbs to use in my win mag so I didn't need to get into my 7mm powder. Sometimes you find stuff in the unlikeliest of places. Seems they have been getting both about every two weeks.

    ...but who the hell wants one pounder bottles. Buying at one pound increments is like shooting yourself in the foot and making the retailer rich.

    I want 8 pounders or 45 pound kegs. 8's at the very least.

    I should be in the propellant business.... Everyone would have powder then.

    I have 3- 8 pounders on the shelf and I consider that the bare minimum. We aren't loaded 22's......:rolleyes:

    Maybe not, but if you combine 8 1lb bottles it will give you the same 8 lbs, not to mention everything they had was the same lot number. Also I am willing to bet there are more than a few who wish they had access to a one pound bottle right now. The price was the same as it was a year ago, so no real gouging there. Yes you will save a few bucks per pound in a larger amount, good luck finding it.:rolleyes:

    It's (on order in 8 pound jugs) and when it comes in, it comes in. I'm fine with that.

    Yeah,right across the road from W. M. M&S Armament. We may have to get together and shoot some time my partner and I shot this morn. I have a range set up behind my house we can get a half mile right now, which we shoot this morn. Once corn is out can get about a mile if your so inclined to do so. I'm just now getting my confidence up to go that far I get a clean cold bore hit about 99% of the time right now at ranges out to a half, so I think by late fall I may be tempted to try a mile.:D

    Burn rates are very close between the 2. I prefer H1000 myself but either works. Just work them up accordingly.

    Yeah I met the guy that ownes M&S while I was at walmart, he was there stocking up as well lol. I'd love to try a half mile shot but I'm still trying to get some consistency at 200yd. Wheres your range?
