15 bids?

I'd suspect this as a 'run up' auction.

That is insane. I know Unique is one of the "do-all" pistol powders but I would find something else before I would pay that.

I don't understand, is this for real? I think I know how i am going to make some extra money. You can't possibly tell me that people are that hard up. My local shop has a bunch of Unique, is it that uncommon in other parts of the country?

Holy S***. I just bought a Lb of Unique here for 19.99 (plus tax). There was plenty of powder there. Folks have lost their little pea brains. :eek:

Probably a joke, I've read about a couple of reloaders putting stuff online just to see how high it will go.

Including the guy selling 1rd (one round) of 22LR, it was on "Gun Broker" the other day.

Auctions are where we can prove that a fool and his money are soon parted.

Good for the seller, that buyer had more money than he could safely be responsible for.

You don't understand... that was an aged pound of powder....

And if I'm wrong...ranger335v is 100% correct.

I picked up a 8lb jug for 109.00+ tax about six weeks ago. If that auction was not shill bidding a fool and his money were soon parted. Some people are getting stoopid on what they pay for powder and primers. That is what happens when you panic buy on a auction site. There is another auction for unique starting at 69.00 with a buy it now at 70.00. No bids yet. What a bargain compared to the other auction!

I also noticed shipping was a flat $8.50, wonder how much trouble the seller will be in if he doesn't declare the package contains hazmat :what:

Wow, with idiots out there like that, I could make some serious profits on what's in the reloading room.

I won't though!

The $100+ pound of Unique tough goes beyond ridiculous.

(Checking my powder larder - I have quite a few pounds of it, now I can afford that new 1911 I had my eye on! ;) )

I just can't believe that's true.

BUT, if it is, I also have 1 brand new jug of Unique on the shelf. I can buy a lot of components with over $100 for something I paid only $17.95 for. I wonder what Power Pistol, HS-6, Longshot and AA#5 can go for?? LOL (I'm not sellin any of my W231!)

If he gets caught, 5 years and/or $25K I believe is the going rate.

Yet another example that crack doesn't smoke itself.
