Thought I'd let everyone know Cabellas has stock for powder now. Picked up 8 pounds of Unique, a pound of Pistol Power and a pound of H335. They had numerous others in stock as well. Plus don't forget to use your 20$ off code.

I was going to get some more but got some reason it wouldn't let me add more. Maybe I can only have ten pounds of powder per order?

I just checked and they are showing several powders "In Stock", not a lot but several. 8lb of Unique for $149.99, plus $20.00 Haz-Mat, and shipping came to just under $200.00. I'm lucky and have plenty on hand so I can wait for a better price. Still if a re-loader is running low or out of powder it's an option.

Thanks for the tip. Oh by the way, they have a two item limit per day per order. So if you can it will save you money to buy the 8lb jugs if they have them.

I hate to ask, but what were the prices on those powder buys?

Walter, most of the powders I looked at (Alliant and IMR) were running right at $27 to $28 per pound.

Unless they're selling Varget or TAC I'm good. I stocked up last week when PV had some for about 10 minutes.

I just checked and they do have TAC. But at $26 per pound I think I'll pass. My 8#er ought to last me a while.

My total was right around 200$ with all the fees. I had the 20$ off coupon and a gift card. I've seen better prices, but have also seen way worse prices. Just didn't want to pass it up, especially the 8# unique.

I live in New Jersey is very tough to find powder around here right now. I took a ride to Delaware and I couldn't believe how much powder they had. I picked up 2 pounds of 2400 they had 16 pounds on the shelf. Among other things it was definitely worth the ride.

I buy all my powder in bulk, mostly from Powder Valley. I just couldn't bear the thought of paying shipping and hazmat for two pounds of powder, but I guess if you're desperate, you do what you have to.

Until a few months ago, the best deal I ever got on powder was AA2200 data powder @ $48 for 8#, shipped. More recently, I got a similar deal on 100# of WC844, no shipping, hazmat or sales tax.

100 pounds of powder at once????? that is a lot. Hopefully I'll be getting a few more pounds tonight from a buddy that bought stuff to reload but has not decided he doesn't want to invest the time in it.

Yep, I'd never bought 100# of powder before, but a friend who's also in the ammo business frequently finds deals on powder in 50# drums. He had a bunch of WC844 and let me have two drums at his price.

I don't even know what I would do with that much powder. I couldn't imagine that cost to load that in other components.
