Default Camp Perry Comercial Row Powder deals

Some really good deals at Camp Perry this year for powder. I really needed the Varget, but only brought $595 with me. Sadly I had to leave it for another sucker,,.,I mean shooter...






Also I got a chuckle out of the North store..

Bob told me it was the "new" going rate and somebody would buy it, but it wasn't me. After seeing that I didn't really look at anything else in there thinking that the "new" going rate probably applied to everything.

Yeah, i was looking for a sleeve of 25 yo Federal LRP but only had $120 on me.

Bob, you could have pulled th old "Camp Perry Special" out of your eyeglasses bag of tricks and been part of the solution but instead you are part of the problem. Those prices were the topic of discussion in the pitts.

Shooters have a long memory Bob...I'll never seek your services

Yeah Bob tried to justify to me why he was charging $2 a round for LC match by saying he has to pay $50 a day rent. I told him one box of Ammo and you’re almost there, let alone the insane powder and primer prices. He got defensive right away when I just said I wasn’t willing to pay his prices, which showed me he knows they’re high.

Several days there and it appeared that most of his items didn’t sell.

I looked at the powder. The guy says, lots of lookers, no buyers. I said, its a little expensive don't you think? Then the guy goes on some Fudd rant about how people want to pay $15 a pound, blah blah.
I said, $36 to $40 a pound is the current market rate....

I don't know why someone would pay $50 a day to sell stuff so overpriced, no one buys anything and you can't pay for the rental....
So would have gladly paid $375 for that varget

Last time I was in Schantzs (sp?) in Otsego they had 8lb jugs of Varget for $270. That was 2 months ago though. Up here my LGS has it pretty regularly for $45/lb. I try and stop there once a week to see what he has. IMR 4064 is around $40/lb, RL 15 is a unicorn.
