    Check out the prices of rifle powder on gun broker.com. $5oo+ for 8# of Varget. Think maybe the stimulus package gave a few billon to the antigunners to buy ammo and supplies. No sportsman would pay the prices that are being asked online. Has to be a government trick for backdoor gun control. Small rifle primers $560 for 5000.

    Walked into a local gun store and found 5000 WW209 primers. Grabbed them off the shelf and put them down by the cash register. While I was digging for my debit card the dufus totalled up $630.00. Set them back on the shelf and walked out.

    I just bought 5000 cheddites for $107 plus tax in southern Indiana. Its not the Government. It is the greed of the sellers in my opinion.

    Bought 5,000 W209 this week for $165. Somebody is trying to get rich quick at our expense. Remember who they are and treat them as such in the future with your purchases.
