    Default Retumbo In Stock Anywhere?

    Anyone know where some might be stashed? Looking for a couple 8 pounders and one 8 pounder Varget. I know it's a stretch, but hey, I gotta try.

    I've been to a few stores this week and haven't seen any anywhere.

    That is really depressing. I think I'll try some surplus powder from gi brass if I cannot find any within a couple of weeks.

    I have several extra pounds of Retumbo, 4 or 5 individual canisters I would trade for Varget. If deal was right would even trade a couple for H1000.

    I'll be in Anchortown and at the Palmer show this weekend.

    Well, I'd buy some Varget, but I'd use it in my .223. I have H-1000, some H-870, but really wanted the Retumbo. If I could land an 8 pounder I'd be good to go. The cost to get it here is obscene which is why I'd spend around $700-$800 on powder. Then it would be affordable on a per pound basis.

    I guess I'll use up my H-1000 and see if I can do okay. I am not after the last few fps, but lowest pressures and Retumbo seems to deliver.
