    I’m really debating on buying an 8lb of 2400 from Midway. In no way do I need it but….

    Well, at the very least it was a PSA to the forum. ;)

    You know... You can load just about any handgun cartridge with those 3 powders... and a fair amount of rifle cartridges, too.

    $32 for Unique and Red Dot, $33 for 2400. I doubt any of it will be there long. At his prices, I didn't blink. Even had a good selection of Missouri bullets I use.

    Yeah, this store owner is very fair with his pricing. He is mostly a shotgun component store, but, has other handloading things also. He has a very loyal local customer base. He doesn't ship and doesn't sell firearms. I guess that keeps his overhead down. Great little shop.

    And just about any shotgun load, I suspect.

    Hmm, I've not asked about that. Next time I'm in there, I will.

    It's good to see it back on the shelves hopefully H4350 will come down in price I see it online for $45 dollars per pound. Not terrible if you're out of hunting rounds but not near stocking up prices.

    I was at a work conference in Hot Springs yesterday and stopped by a local shop looking for 2400.
    Didn't find any, but did pick up a pound of H110. I was glad to get it, but not so glad to pay $38 for it. It's the most I've ever paid, but loading .44 mag and .357 mag is still much cheaper even paying that, so I did.

    They had any primer you wanted.......................for $13.99/100. I passed on those. I've got a couple thousand left, so I'll ride it out a little longer.

    Well 2400, Unique and Red Dot are shotgun powders after all. Lucky for you for sure.

    It’s all coming back finally. About a year after expected but better later than never.

    Let me know when they have Varget and 4895. Those seem to be the litmus test of powder availability.

    And Trail Boss.
