    I finally scored big on powder yesterday in Indy.
    Got 16 lbs of Green Dot (non existent for the last 4 months), and 8lbs of Bullseye! With my discount I paid $100.50 for 8 lb jug of each one.
    I am at one with the world again!

    I'm seeing lots of components coming in these days. My Son was at Cabela's a couple days ago, and they had just about everything, and in good supply. Locally too, primers, powders, bullets all streaming in fairly well now.

    I'm jelly! :what:

    I got ahold of 8# of Green Dot awhile back & paid $240 OTD. $30/lb is about what the scalpers are getting here behind the tofu curtain. :barf:

    You do realize, that depending on the caliber you will have to buy some more powder after a mere 35,000 rounds or so? :p

    I scored some BE over the weekend as well. It's maybe 40 yrs old, but at $7/lb, not going to complain.
