    Default Lots of Powder in Anchorage

    Visited SW and GNG's today looking for some V 135 powder. Both places had pretty full shelves.
    SW had the 8 pound jugs of Varget for $180. Pretty much any type of Hodgon powder you could want.
    Alas, none of the Vihtavuori 135 for me (.

    That's good news. Great Northern had a lot of powder too. Did you happen to see their primer selection?

    I was just at SWH yesterday, and it was nice to see all the powder on the shelves...kegs as well, but not a large selection of primers yet. Looks like the long drought is about over. I hope everyone (including me) learns from it...history has a way of repeating itself.

    Correction on the Varget, I think it was $189. Sorry but I did not look at the primer selections.

    Doc,
    History has taught me to maintain about 35-40 pounds of powder and 8-10K of primers. This has allowed me to weather thru a couple of "storms" without worry.
    Alas, it still seems with each new firearm addition another type of powder is required.

    Randy, history has taught me EXACTLY the same lesson. Two years ago I started buying my powders in kegs and my primers in bricks (long before the big shortage).
