Thread: Shelves becoming a little thin.....

    Shelves becoming a little thin.....



    I noticed a few empty slots that aren't filled.
    Kidding aside, I walked into the local ranch supply store and found this. Evidently some powders and primers are starting to flow, including Varget. I think there was 18 pounds on the shelf. FYI, the big orange posters hanging on the shelves are saying that all customers are limited to two, one-pound containers of powder daily. This rationing has been in place for several years. ~Muir

    It's not a gun shop. It's a ranch supply store that carries some shooting gear. This is the only other pic I have; hope for my UK brethren who yearn for Varget. They had 18 pounds on the shelf.~Muir


    PS: Second row down on the right....

    That's great. I realised it wasn't a gunshop, but that makes it all the more special. I guess we just don't have the market here for decent reloading supplies shops close to where we live.

    Seeing as how we just finished the last one, wonder if they would consider another lend lease agreement?

    I doubt that you could amass that amount of powder in a U.K. gun shop if you combined the stocks of 10 U.K. stores.

    Saying that I was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of powder stocked by Dauntsey guns a little while ago.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    It's nice to see things getting back to where they should be. This was a real shocker to me. The pickings have been slim for such a long time. I even found Lil Gun on the shelf which has been scarce.

    So if this looks like a lot of powder, I must ask: How many pounds of powder does the average shop carry? This is about what a middleweight retailer would carry here.~Muir

    If only we had a drive thru window for reloading components....
