    Default Group powder buy - Interested?

    Need some powder? I am trying to put together a group buy from this company:

    http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/stylemenu.html

    I only plan on ordering 8 pound jugs to keep the box size down which will lower freight cost. So far it looks like if I get one box with 6 jugs in it the total freight bill to Anchorage will run right around $21-22 per jug including hazmat, insurance, freight, etc. I need to stay in increments of "6" because that is how many fit into a box. If we can get an order for 12 the freight charge will come down to about $11 per jug. These figures are not in stone and subject to the final freight charges.

    Not going to make a penny on this and you can see all the receipts when the powder arrives. I'll place an order on Monday before heading down to SCI if there is enough interest. Would expect the powder to be here within three weeks, maybe sooner.

    No PM's. Post here as to what 8 pound jug you want. I'll foot the bill and you pick it up within 3 days of when it comes in as long as you are a member in good standing here. Exceptions being if you are fairly new here or if you promised to buy something from me before then stood me up then I want a check for your portion before placing the order.

    When I did it back in 08 I tried to do the fit it into X boxes thing but because the jugs are shaped different by brand it didnt work. It didnt matter anyway though, they (Powder Valley) used 5 old boxes they had sitting around and made it work for the same price anyway. Hazmat fee covered a cretin weight of powder (not counting packaging weight) no matter how many boxes the order was. Powder Valley and Linden were both great to work with and ordering and shipping was an easer deal than I thought, getting the powder to the right guys was a bit harder than I thought.

    If it works out to the cheaper rate Id be in for at least some 800X.

    Id also like some Blue Dot but they only stock 5 ponders, no 8 pound and I don't know if that will work for you.

    Then if a filler is needed to make shipping work I can always use some LilGun.

    Here are the Powder Valley stock numbers Im looking at:
    800X, stock# IMR800X-08
    Blue Dot, stock# ALLBD-05
    LilGun, stock# HODLIL-08

    You will want to get these stock numbers up front to reduce hassle, I had to track down a couple guys to figure out what they acutely wanted there are a lot of similar confusing powder choices.

    Holler if you need anything, I ran 3 powder orders and a primer order back when it was hard to get the stuff so I've been there.

    I didnt calculate the rate correctly if we ordered 7-12 jugs. The shipping rate for 7-12 jugs would be approximately $16 per jug.

    Andy, 5 pound jugs of Blue Dot would be OK but the shipping would run the same as an 8 pounder. Carlile's rate quote is up to 150 pounds.

    Looks like we have enough to order at least 7 jugs. 5 more and we will have 12. After that it will have to bump up to 18 if more are interested.

    John, since you are pretty new here will need the cash up front. 50% deposit would be fine with me. PM sent.

    With the 2, 8 pound jugs of Ramshot I am ordering we are up to 8 containers so far. Need 4 more to get the slightly better price break of approximately $16 per jug.

    9 down, 3 to go. If we get orders for 12 jugs I'll order before leaving for Vegas. If not will order it when I return.

    If we don't get the last two we are either going to have to pay the slightly higher shipping charges (approx 21-22 per jug) or cancel the order.

    I vote for paying the 21-22 but everyone needs to be on board for this so give me a yes or no guys. It's only another $6 or so.

    Randy,

    I will order at least 2 5/8 pound containers but am at work now and need to see what I have at home so will email in a couple of hours when I get home and check my inventory. I'll look for you at SCI.

    Randy, with $22 shipping my order is just $17.50/pound, the last pound of Win 231 I bought was about $10 more. I'm still in.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!
