    Powder valley has some great prices, but they are about 30 days out before shipping a product. But if their websites says it is in stock then it is, just don't be in a hurry to get the product.

    Warren you must have gotten the last one, because it is out of stock.

    I would say if the "button" was there and you ordered it, it should be in stock for you.

    Nice. I was just going to go and get some Green Dot in the near future as I am running low. Seeing as I can't find any I guess that seals it for me shooting anymore targets this year. Nice job and thanks to all who hoarded everything in panic and ended up driving up prices and sending people away from shooting instead of trying to bring more people in.

    I won't even be able to finish out my league shooting this year now unless I can get some.

    Don't you guys ever patronize your local gun shops? No one has any powder? "No one" must be the mail-order houses because I bought one-pound bottles of Varget, IMR8208XBR, IMR4007SSC and RE-7 at one shop last Friday and all of them were priced between $25.95 and $28.95. Another had a decent inventory of rifle and handgun powders as well as eight-pound jugs of Red Dot, Green Dot, TiteGroup, TiteWad, 700X, 800X, Clays and Clays International for $108 to $129; PB was $143. And they had other shotgun powders as well.

    Back away from your PC and visit your local shops! If the ones in my area have inventory, yours should too.

    x2 I'm lucky I guess as I found two 8lb containers of green dot from an individual that quit reloading and then another 8lb from a fella that I swapped some other powder that I don't use anymore. I had never used green dot for 28 and 20 gauge and will try it now so hopefully I will only have to keep two powders. The second being 296. Jackie B.

    It's gone now. Grafs only has a few lines of powder here and there in 1# and/or 14 oz containers. I didn't see a limit to purchases like recob's. They did still have TiteWad in 8# jugs, that's a good powder.
