Varget sighting online

I found Varget in stock this evening at Natchez.

I have a good supply on hand. Passing on the link to y'all because I know the frustration of trying to find it.

I'd like to get another 8 lbs but $50 for shipping & hazmat to VA makes it almost $30 a lb.

Just found Varget locally (Fisherville,VA) for $32 lb plus tax so this isn't as bad as I thought. I picked up some lb cans from Midsouth last week for less than $28 a lb but they are currently sold out.

Varget sighting online

I know that it does not appear adjacent on the burn rate chart, but have you guys considered purchasing the IMR Enduron equivalent? In this interview Chris Hodgdon highlights that the IMR Enduron powder are shipped from Canada and do not suffer from the shipping issues like Hodgdon Extreme powders.

IMR 4166 is what he mentions as close to Varget. The other Enduron powders are very close to the Hodgon Extreme equivalents.


Varget = IMR 4166
H4350 = IMR 4451
H1000 = IMR 7977
H4895 = none
H4831 = IMR 4955

OP - thanks for the heads up on Varget.

As an alternative for 308 - RL15 - works great for me.

Alliant powders have been hard to find in my area. I am been looking for RL22 for months. I would love to try RL15.

Once more, thanks THR. OK, thanks OP! This mornings duty was to find powder for AR's. I believe a storm may be a brewing once more and this kind of stuff my be next to impossible to find. So thanks All! In a matter of a few days 8# shall arrive.

The more I thought about what happened to supplies last time an idiot hurt our country the more I thought about upping my order. I'm not a horder or prepper and I don't want to create an undue demand but I also remember not finding a lot of stuff post event. Anyway, Natchezss allowed me to add an additional five 1# to my order. Made the fees much more tolerable.

If you're in south Florida and need some, hit me up. I have several pounds and I don't reload 5.56 any more.

You used Varget only in the .223, no other rifle cartridge? You don't load for the .308, the 30-06 or any other rifle cartridge? I'm just curious.

For those looking for RL15, please note that Norma 203B is the same powder. It's available at a number of sites but tends to be expensive. I lucked out a few months ago and found it on sale at Widener's for $140/8 lb.
