    my fathers gun shop / bullet casting company closed last year... i cleaned out his basement and i have so much powder left.

    he doesn't reload anymore, or cast anymore... so he has me loading all of the ammo we shoot now...


    i have over 800 pounds of powder here i have been selling off little at a time.... but right now nobody is buying. so i am stuck with it..... I'm going to start listing it here soon to try and thin out the stock... there are some powders i will never use,

    At one time I tried to keep a years supply of components on hand. Over the years I have changed that to 2 election cycles or 8 years.

    Run out first I think I would need some powder and since I don't have any I guess the answer must be I already did run out. Best of luck to those who have powder and reloading components as I am guessing things will get tight again soon.

    I currently have enough to last me the rest of my life realistically. But I still buy more if I see stuff I want to try. I never seem to have enough lead or primers.

    I'd be out too soon. Need a better storage solution.

    Anyone who has not taken time to fill in their needs this past year was asleep the previous five years. Don't be whining when it re-occurs.

    VERY old thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Today I have enough powder to last me at least 20 years! Back then.......not so much.

    Tons of powder out there now.......in any form you wish, so absolutely no excuse for lack of powder. Unless you are dead broke.
