    The good stuff! SR4759 and 8 unopened pounds of it at that!
    Pretty scarce stuff anymore, I think it fits in with the rarity of hens teeth and rocking horse poo! I managed to get a few 1lb'ers of it a few years ago but have never laid eyes on an 8lb'er of it.

    Rest of the show was very dismal. This made the $12 ticket worth it. Found a neat 20rd packet of .303 British, 1950 FN production too. Labeled as Bren MG ammo.

    Well done.

    It always feels good when ya beat the system.


    Just curious, why do ya have a picture of an old J-79 engine in your profile picture?
    My first guess would be from being well acquainted with F-4s.

    Thanks! I wish it wasn't discontinued along with some others but happy to get what I have. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while!

    F4 Phantom was the loudest jet plane I’ve ever heard at a air show! On full afterburner takeoff, it would literally shake the ground! Great score on the 4759!!!
    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!

    I know where a keg of blue dot sets.. but 8# will likely be a lifetime supply for me... not sure I want or need that much.. would love some 1# jugs.. and now that IMR discontinued blue.. schucks...

    You made the score of the year. I used it in 32-40 years ago and it was excellent.
