    I happened upon a 8lb jug of 4350 yesterday! I never thought I would be happy to pay full retail for a jug of powder, but I'm glad to have it.

    I know what you mean, I stumbled upon a 8lb jug of H1000 last week. Cost me $152.99, but its still like getting over 2lbs free
    compared to buying it a pound at a time. I jumped on it.

    I loaded up on 5# of Varget last month, primers I've been able to buy right along without to much issue.

    Batches of individual powders are hitting the shelves around here. One day the shop will have a case or two of 4064 and the next some 8208 XBR. Seems like more IMR powders than Hodgdon or other brands.

    Hasn't started showing up in sufficient quantity for it to last more than 24-36 hours on the shelf. Hit and Miss, mostly Miss.

    Check your local Big 5, for some reason the Big 5, here, stocks Winchester rifle primers.
