    Those prices have hazmat and shipping built into them, it's not just the price of the powder. Also, it sounds like there are a few 33 pound bundles of powder left as of last night, if anyone is still looking to get some.

    Living in lower Michigan, I've often contemplated whether it would be a wise decision to store powder in the garage (not climate controlled) in a dark area. I keep it in a closet in the house now, but I would think it would be safer to keep it in...

    Got the Vortex crossfire in the mail a couple days ago. Haven’t had a chance to test it at the range, but it is a solid little red dot. I can honestly say I like it way more than my strikefire. I’m looking forward to putting rounds down range with...

    When I get some of this loaded up, I will try to get back here with results on how it shoots. Others I have talked to seem to have good results with it using data posted from the website I believe that was posted previously in this thread.

    I don't know how the weather is there, but driving around here isn't much fun right now. We have been getting a good amount of snow.

    I ended up ordering a batch of it. Certainly seems to be packaged well enough. My wife wasn't too amused though :Fire:

    They seem to sell it somewhat quickly. If you are on facebook, look up the group associated with the company (Redeye Reloading). The owner is quite active in the group, and he does a good job of letting members know about the availability of...

    Electric88 replied to a thread Big Bore AR-15s in Military Rifles
    I've got the 50 Beowulf. As previously mentioned, whitetail hunting in lower Michigan you can only have straight walled cartridges. Since this shares the same diameter bullet as the S&W 500, I figured it was the best choice for me. Everyone that...

    Maybe you're right, they aren't thieves. I guess any time I see one place charging a significant amount more than others, I immediately lose any interest in dealing with them. But, that is capitalism I suppose, and vastly better than the...

    Electric88 replied to a thread Trigger 4 AR15 in Factory Rifles
    For a trigger that is a decent step up from mil-spec but not super expensive, ALG makes some solid triggers. I believe they are a sister company to Giessele, but can't recall offhand for sure. Never tried the PSA trigger. Maybe I'll have to give...

    Any gun shop I've been to has been charging between $500 and $550 for the Ruger 9mm carbine, and any place I've seen online is the same (with the exception of gunbroker). Sounds like the consensus has already been established that any gun shop...

    Ah, that makes sense. I've got a Vortex Strikefire that has been awesome, but I have never seen them for $69 haha.

    I suppose I should have paid a little better attention during my U.S. history class haha. You're a bit farther than 50 miles from me. Sorry, I'd gladly split it with you! I'm still highly considering picking up a package of it.

    I'm right there with you. I think I have about 10-12 pounds of pistol powder already sitting, and I'm not sure if I really need 33 pounds more of it. I'm not sure what the land of 10,000 lakes is, but if I was anywhere near you I would go in on it...

    You must be talking about Redeye Reloading JonB. I've contemplated buying the 33 pound lot (averages out to be about $10 a pound), but was on the fence about whether I wanted to mess with a powder that there was no data for in reloading manuals...
