    Despite the recent component shortages, anybody got a line on decently priced 8# kegs of Varget?

    TIA

    The local Sportsman's Warehouse has a spot for it on the shelf, but the shelf is empty.
    Good price, though. About one and a quarter. Let's see if the price goes up when they actually have some in stock.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Ants but I should have asked my question with a little more info. I don’t exactly live at the end of the Earth but I can see it from here. Anything I get will have to be via the internet. Haz-mat fees are just a part of doing business.

    Thanks again.

    If you have a Sportsmans Warehouse to patronize and you don't see what you want on the shelf, ask. I was recently in the one in OKC, and asked for 1 lb. of Alliant 2400 as they had the display canister on the shelf. The (clueless) counter person went to the back and came out explaining that they didn't have any 1 lb. cans of 2400 but.."I found this!" he said, proudly holding a 4 lb. jug of 2400 up in the air. I bought it for $64, which I thought was pretty fair I didn't have to pay HazMat or freight. 35W

    Powder Valley has them in stock for $124. $15.50 a lb isn't great but it's not bad either.

    Graf's has it too but they want $138.59 which is a little high IMO.

    Thanks for all the replies. I put in an order to Powder Valley for the Varget and a few other goodies... about $300 worth.

    Thanks again.

    You will be happy with the service you get from Powder Valley.

    Over the past year or two when I've bought online it's been from Powder Valley since the prices are fair and they charge only 1 Hazmat fee when you buy both powder and primers in the same order.
