    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.

    Anyone know where this powder went on their website? Saw it a few days ago and went back to buy today but can't find it now.

    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 certain items. If you are not able to (or don't have a facebook account), I can try and message him a bit later to see if he has any. He may have sold out again.

    I also see the post on FB that made me aware of the powder has been pulled also.
    That stuff went quick.
    I recall they have a batch of it last fall...I'm not sure if that's any indication of the frequency that they get a batch or not? But if they made money on it, and they are able to get more, I'm sure they will get some as soon as they can.

    FYI, The person from Redeye posts lots of ads and announcements for new items in the FB group "TRR - Buy and Sell"

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

    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.

    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.

    JonB,

    I might be interested in splitting some thing in these powders, but my interests are only in the Accurate #2 #5 & #9 equivalents.

    I do not know the pricing on what is being available & it looks like it is "iffy" as to when it is available, but , like I said, it might interest me if ya want to split some up & I can ask around to see if anyone else might be interested around here as well. Or, maybe find someone in between us...


    Let me know if ya want to do something like that, although we are 70-80 miles apart, not 50.

    I looked at redeye reloading. His powder prices are outrageous. He is insane high.

    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.

    I use the D 60 01 buffalo it is the 5477 equivalent. I shot cast the lee 309-150fn out of a ruger precision. Some at the range looked at me funny for shooting cast out of that rifle. I was getting good results and one guy was impressed on the cast and results. So was I, I realy like the powder it burned good no leading using alox lube with gas check.
