after reading another thread about the amount of powder available for reloading here in southcentral ak it got me thinking. how much powder do you go through? seems to me that a pound would last for a while. how many loads are you getting out of a pound in what caliber. seems a little odd that someone would need to purchase a whole pallet of powder in fear that he would be able to get any more in the amount of time its gonna take him to use that supply.
