1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I have an open keg (8lb) of Hodgdon universal powder that I recently bought. I have loaded just 3-4 boxes from it to try it out, does not work very well with R209 primers I use.

    It still has 7+ LB left in there, $105.

    Local, face to face sale only please. SoCal area (San Diego,CA).

    Thanks,
    JB

    If you use a little hotter primer you probably be satisfied with it.I've loaded it for 12s and 20s with great results on trap and sporting even with 20s.

    I've used it for years in 20 & 28 gauges with Win, Cheddite and Fiocchi primers with very satisfactory results. Just sayin'....

    Unique is my other "favorite" 20/28 powder, but have not tried the newer Alliant 20-28 powder so can't comment on it, probably as good as any though.

    Have fun in any case....

    Thanks for your comments guys. I am aware (through an another thread on TS.COM) about this powder requring a little hotter primer to burn completely.

    I am trying to cut down on the number of various components I need to keep to support my shooting needs and don't want to introduce an another primer to my pile !

    Still up for sale !

    Thanks,
    JB

    I don't have any problems with it using noble sport primers.
