    This guy has Shelves FULL of almost everything, EVEN VARGET for the tacticool crowd, which I haven't seen in a couple years.
    Only catch is all powders in 1lb jugs are $35 freakin bucks. & an 8lb of H4350 was something like $230 (if I remember right)
    So, LRH buddies, if your in Central Oregon, & need powder, fling me a PM.

    I wouldn't buy any at those prices.Supplies are starting to catch up. Me and a few friends have picked up some of the hardest powders to get recently.He's $10 a lb too much...

    Oh, agreed 100%. $25 is reasonable-ish but $35 sucks!
    The deal is, he HAS IT All IN STOCK. & people are still going to desperate measures. Consider Joe Blow. He knows huntin season is closing in fast. There's little to no factory ammo around, & powder has been virtually extinct in most places for Far too long.

    Talk about the unprepared guy being in a pickle.

    I picked up 1lb of RL-17 cause its been over a year since I've seen any, & I was down to my last 1/2 lb, & I really like to shoot.

    I'm still doubled up on RL-19, & IMR-4831, & have 1lb jugs of H-4350, RL-22, & Win Supreme 780.
    So I didn't get caught with my pants down, but my supplies have taken a pretty big hit. If I'd had the $ I'd have bought some IMR-7828SC, & Varget, but for $35 I just got what I needed.

    .....reminds me of the gouging that went on with AR's and AK's after the school shootings. Flying off the shelves at 4 times actual worth.....

    Was hard to resist temptation when at a gun show some guy offered me 15 hundred dollar bills for an AK I wanted to part with. I didn't refuse. 1500 for a rock with no stock to speak of and a sinister look. Oh well. Ugliest furniture in the world and the black phospate on the barrel and receiver left a lot to be desired too.

    I still have a pile of 762-39 roiunds in the cabinet. Probably give them away at some point.

    Felt like it when I left, :D but he has a Ton of powder, & no one else can get any around here.

    Like I said, I have enough on hand for now, in most categories, but was running low on RL-17 & hadn't seen any in over a year so.... What's an extra $10 if it gains you multiple shooting sessions you wouldn't get without it?

    Ya it's $10 too expensive but I've wasted Way more than that on gas alone, just looking for components in the first place.
    Thank Goodness Nosler is right down the road, so I'm usually not hurtin for brass, or bullets!

    You are right of course. We spend more at the carryout for beverages.....(in my case, bottled water)......:):)

    I thought (after reading the original post) that the thread title should have been 'Powder Bung Hole'.......lol
