    The little shop that could.

    I stopped at a new LGS. Mt Carmel guns and ammo. Just a little hole in the wall shop. They had 38 super for 23.00. I grabbed a box. And they had gun powder. I got a pound of 2400 for 25.00. And a box of Hornady 17 HMR. At 15.00.

    If anyone is near Mt Carmel Pa. And needs some items. It might be worth your time. They had maybe 10 different powders. A lot of dies. No primers. The shop is on Oak st.

    Stopped in my last earlier and saw a pound of H4350. Said um, whats that behind the counter. He smiled and said it was reserved - for him. Told him at least to turn the bottle around.

    I can find powder around here at several places. Really don't need any, but wanted some IMR 4198 the other day and got some. One shop still has several bottles of IMR 4320, I need to go buy them out since it's discontinued now.

    Cool Rich. The clays powder is new to me. So i'll have fun working up new loads. The rifle was 100.00 less than the LGS i usually buy from. He jumped on the gouging band wagon. His loss my gain i say. Plus the new LGS is less than 1/2 the distance.

    You will like Clays for light loads. I found it accurate in my .38 Spl guns.

    Nice score.

    I just ordered the same 22 from my last yesterday. Don't really need one but hey cheap enough to satisfy the itch.

    Cool MrWolf. I shot mine today. Zeroed in the sights. It was awful wet on the ground. I quit shooting it when my feet got wet and cold. But anyways im happy with it.

    Then today i was back at the new LGS bought my 1st CZ. I got a 457 in 22 WMR. I traded 4 Hi-point pistols. He gave me 400.00 for them. So the rifle was 58.00 out of pocket.

    I’m going by my old memory here but I think you will find Red dot is also good to use as well as clays. I’ve loaded .380acp- 30-30 and had good results with less powder.
    Of course you have to be careful of a double charge like with other powders.
    Enjoy n be safe.
