Morning all,

Popped into sportsman yesterday to pick up fresh 1lb pot of Varget only to be told that it was a mind blowing £46! I'm sure my last one cost £36. Can any one comment on their prices locally, may have to go else where next time? Any one think that price is too much ?

Regards

Carl.

paid £35 at borders gunroom a couple months ago. £46!!! what a joke...honestly, the price we pay for components in this country is a farce...50 noslers costing over £50, and equivalent US rate is about £17.

I bought a tub last week, it was priced at 45, but I got em down to 40 pretty easily. Im thinking about saving up and buying a big 8lb tub tbh.

I purchased some at the beginning of the year cost me £36 then I thought it was expensive but £46 as you are quoting now is beyond a joke.

The price of powder for me in the States has gone from around $20/lb to $25/lb over the last couple of months. Some of the Alliant powders are $28/lb, up from $22/lb. The prices took a climb this last quarter....~Muir

WOW...thats expensive. I paid £36 a tub in October. Bought 2. If the 204 lieks ther loads ive just made for it Ill be going back for more before it goes up. I use it in my 22.250 and 6.5 x 55 so ideal if I get nice groups and a good speed with the 204 too.

Not sure of Varget prices but recently enquired about Reloader 17 at Northalerton shooting supplies to be told that its now £45.17 per 1lb. thats about a £100 a kilo!!!!!!!, I have had a rethink, will stick with n140 for the time being.

They're taking the ****. I bought 2 tubs last week for £38 each.
Buy some more because the prices will increase sharply on their next shipment. Here in the US the prices have gone up 25% over the last couple of months. Remember: You guys always catch it last.~Muir

Try James Simpson at Blue Fox Glade Chawleigh. Its only a few miles down the a377 towards Barnstaple from you. It was about £34 there last time I bought it.

You are being A***Raped at that price, Trade price is £54 including VAT plus some carriage, so £65-75 is normal RRP, i would march in there and tell them where to go.
