    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.

    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!
