Did I write that you should feel "ashamed?" No, I did not. Why are you putting words into my post that I did not write? Just be more considerate next time.

I am envious as I too am searching in vain for Varget or 4895 for mt 308. BTW, I would have done the same thing.......buying as much as was available.

You did fine getting all four pounds. Lucky you. It's not hoarding if you're going to use it. You were just at the right place at the right time.

Yes, no, maybe. meh. But as other(s) said, I really wouldn't make a public brag post about my score.

Look at it like this...say you were in the store, third in line. In front of you was a husband and his wife. The husband tells the clerk "I'll take two of those powders, and my wife here (wink, wink) will take the other two." How would you feel then?

What bugs me about this post is all the people so weak in their convictions that they embrace the tenets of communism so easily.

"It's not fair" is an argument best left to liberal swine. You got a deal, good for you, if I were the one behind you in line I would blame myself for not showing up earlier. Yes, it's hard to get. Should i get the chance to buy at a decent price I would buy all I could. This is capitalism people, you should embrace it. Either that or quit lamenting the loss of freedom as YOU are the ones not supporting its practice.

Freedom is not fair and is sometimes painful to those who truly exercise it. Get over it! Or, join the liberals in the progressive march. Just so you know, that will cost you your guns in the long run.

You are right. As a gun community we shouldn't care about each other as long as "I got mine!"

More like, "I took care of mine." Whatever makes you "feel" better i guess.

Right. PSA should quit selling AR mags for $12. They should sell them for $50 so they can "take care of theirs."

4 pounds equal 28000 grains. I suspect the 223 load uses about 25-28 grains. So you have enough for 1000-1100 rounds.

Do you have 1000 bullets??

1000 bullets about $200, powder probably $100 and the primers about $40. So you will have at least $340 bucks in those rounds, assuming you have the brass to recycle. You will have enough ammo for 5 trips to the range. Now only if you can find time to do the loading you are all set.
