I just ordered a bunch also,too bad they are out of primers.
I hate having less than 5-10K of each type I use,and I'm getting near the 5K mark on several.
They didn't have the powders that I really like to use,but I can use these for substitute's on several calibers.
8lbs W-760
8lbs H-414
8lbs H-Hybrid 100V
2lbs IMR 4350

Hopefully,they will get restocked on the other powders/primers soon,and I will get stocked up for a few years!

The powders that I use most, HS-6, H335,H110, W760 and IMR 4895, I try to keep an unopened 8 lb jug in reserve in addition to the jug on the workbench.

As soon as I notice a jug of powder getting low, I buy the replacement and put it in storage before I open the "spare.'

Order powder online? Way to expensive for me. I paid 108.00 for my last 8lb IMR4064. Powder valley is 147.00, that is nuts!! Still 128.00 local. 1lb H335, BLC(2), W231, IMR4320, IMR4831 are all about 18.00, Unique, 19.00. I found a partial can of Dupont IMR4320 that has a 6.99 tag on it and Olin W231 5.99. The good 'ole days. It will do some fertilizing this spring. Some reloading items were misspacked when we moved into our house 15 years ago.

Even with shipping and hazmat it was cheaper than local

Like Robo said,All the local outlets have become too greedy around here.
$48 for 1k primers,$186 for 8lbs of powder.
Even with the Hazmat & shipping fees,I come out a lot cheaper ordering large quantities. I'll be glad when primers come back in stock,I'm going to pick up atleast 10K in every type I use.
