The powder gods smiled upon me today Login/Join

I had just finished my 5th 12 hour shift in the ER and decided to look at the local firearms forums for anything cool before hitting the rack. Well today I happen to be the first to reply to a gentleman about some powder he had for sale. I was able to score 5lbs of Varget and 2 lbs of 4064 for $175. That is a steal in todays market. I am set for 77gr and 308 loads for a while.

Eek

You committed highway robbery! Looks like old stock, since my newer cans of Varget have plastic caps, but robbery nonetheless.

Nice score.

Nice of him to sell it for $25/lb. Quite a bargain these days

"The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with." -Douglas Adams

“It is just as difficult and dangerous to try to free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to try to enslave a people that wants to remain free."
-Niccolo Machiavelli

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all. -Mencken

I was just at the shop this weekend. They had raised the price on Varget to almost $70!!! I got some just two months ago from them and it was $55.

Midway has it for like $40. Roll Eyes
