    Picked up a 1 pound jug of Winchester 748 in Snappy Sport Senter in Kalispell yesterday afternoon. They had a 1 limit so I could not get the 2nd jug they had. Had to pay $27.00 for the pound of 748.


    What was left when I departed was (1) H50BMG, (1) US869, (1) W748, and (1) W296.

    Last week I bought a 14oz jug of Hi-Skor 700X at Cabella's in Kalispell to use as a booster in Duplex Loading with my stash of W860 and W872. Had to give $29.00 for that 14Oz jug. Have wanted to pick up Unique for last 2 years, but no luck. I only have 1/2 pound left in Unique.

    Picked up 4 1 pounders of Unique at a local shop. I left 4 on the shelf. Anyone in the Ark-La-Tex area in need it let me know in a PM. He also had power pro 2000 and 4000 along with a bunch of Winchester AA feather lite and a little green dot.

    Ouch.

    I passed on 5 pounders of RE 19, sorry Lloyd, and 8 pounders of either H110 or 296.

    I did get 5 K Win small pistol primers for 150 bucks plus tax.

    I picked up 1 lb of 4227 yesterday at a local gun shop . then today at another local gun shop I saw 4 -1 lb containers of pb on the shelf and I snagged them all . I know I should have left 1 or 2 for someone else but ever since I heard that pb is on the go away list I grab every container of it I can find. they also had 2 containers of blue dot on the shelf im wishing now I would have grabbed 1 of those as well .

    Didn't buy anything today but I'm at 44#s over the past three weeks. I'm transferring a pistol tomorrow morning so I will most likely be coming home w/ more. I'm set for a good amount of time but I really need to increase my LR primer stock. I know I can buy all I want tomorrow, at $50 per thousand. So I will not be buying any

    I loaded up back before the 2nd term election, my local gunshop had everything a guy could ask for, and they also have Layaway, that's a big plus to me! I got #4 of w296, I4064, i4895, and 2k each of large rifle, small rifle, small pistol, and large pistol. All for the low price of $415, and I had 6 months to pay it out! They still have a lot of components, but the prices are inflated by far!

    Local guy sold me 2 lbs of Bullseye the other day at $20 each. Course I slipped him a 20 lb bar of linotype. Seems all Alliant is hen's teeth these days.

    Gun show yesterday had Unique 8 pound jugs for $110. Had I known it was that hard to come by, I would have grabbed it. I bought a pound last week for $16.

    Nothing today since they had no powders I was interested in. Their selection was the worst I've seen it in months. I was told they have more coming in this week but that didn't help me today
